Sigma Phi Epsilon President: Nicholas Rye

Sig Ep President Nick"My name is Nicholas Rye, joining Sigma Phi Epsilon during my freshman year in the Fall of 2020. Since I joined, I have held roles in SigEp as VP of Programming for three semesters and then currenlty President. Sigma Phi Epsilon has meant more than just a fraternity to me. It is a band of brotherhood that is there to celebrate the highest highs, but also endure the lowest lows. SigEp has helped shape my college experience and pushed me to reach my potential to never be satisfied or complacent in life. While I am very grateful for the leadership skills and for life after-college experience I have gained, I am confident that the relationship will last for past college. It is GREAT to be a SIGEP."
