Camp Big Sky

Camp Big Sky is our philanthropy to help build a better camp for special needs children

Welcome

Welcome to the Sigma Phi Epsilon Illinois Delta Chapter of Bradley University. Sigma Phi Epsilon is the largest national fraternity with over 16,000 undergraduates at over 240 college campuses. The mission of all Sigma Phi Epsilon Chapters is "Building Balanced Men." These words capture the value of becoming a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, which set a course for men to live their best lives by embracing our cardinal principles of Virtue, Diligence and Brotherly Love and the practice of Sound Mind and Sound Body. The Leadership Continuum The Illinois Delta Chapter was founded on January 9, 1949 by men who wanted to bring these values to Bradley University, values that are still maintained at the highest standards today.

Why We're Different

The Illinois Delta Chapter of the Sigma Phi Epsilon has been one of the top houses on Bradley's campus since its founding in 1949. We strive to fulfill our three cardinal principals, Virtue, Diligence and Brotherly Love, in everything we do. Nationally, SigEp is the largest fraternity in the nation with approximately 17,000 undergraduate members currently. We are a fraternity of firsts, being the first to abolish the pledging process, first to open our doors to men of a different color and sexual orientation and many other landmark firsts.

One of the benefits of joining SigEp is that there is no pledge process. Instead, we have our Balanced Man Program. The Illinois Delta program is a customized, four step program that will build you into a Balanced Man ready for the real world after college. This past year the Illinois Delta program won an award as one of the top programs in the region.

SigEp brings the opportunity to move into house as well. It is cheaper to live in house than it is to live in the dorms, and our cook, Laura, will prepare your meals for you. You have the chance to build your room however you wish, with no restrictions that you might find moving into the dorms or an apartment.

Leadership is something every organization needs, and SigEp is no exception. The experience gained from holding a position in house is priceless, and looks great on any resume. With all different chair positions, as well as Executive Council and Standards Board positions, there is room for anyone who wants to become a part of something bigger than themselves.

As Greek men, we have heard several objections to the Greek system. We can assure you this isn't Animal House. We have a set of standards we uphold and set to ensure we stay one of the top houses on campus. Yes, there are dues to pay for being a part of the fraternity, but living in house will make up for that cost in as little as one semester. And if time commitment is an issue, understand that the minimal time expectations are one hour a week for chapter meetings.

At SigEp, we bring a lot to the table. We excel in everything we do, whether it is sports, academics, social status or overall brotherhood.

About SigEp

The Fraternity's mission has been refined to be "Building Balanced Men." With these three words, we capture the essence of SigEp's value to its members: charting a course for men to live their best lives by embracing our cardinal principles of Virtue, Diligence and Brotherly Love and committing to the practice of Sound Mind and Sound Body.

The men of SigEp can follow this course through every role in their lives. Every element of SigEp's short- and long-term plan is designed to deliver on this mission.

Why the change?

The mission has been "Building Balanced Leaders for the World's Communities" since 2001. The previous mission allowed the Fraternity to build a range of local and national programs to allow men to enhance leadership abilities and forge a strong brotherhood. Going forward, we will continue to refine and improve these leader-oriented programs while we focus on the holistic elements of balance that create a man's best life as leader, brother, husband, father, mentor, community servant, and citizen.

With an estimated quarter million members, SigEps live, serve and work around the globe. They are having significant impact in business, government, community service and academia. Our mission is carried out through chapters and by cultivating the connections alumni have with one another.

SigEps at Camp Big Sky

For quite a few years, Illinois Delta has been supporting the organization Camp Big Sky. There, mentally handicapped people can receive the full camping experience they may not be able to get at other places.

Visitors of Camp Big Sky can fish, build fires, go for a boat ride and enjoy the outdoors. The camp is has accommodations for wheelchairs and anything else a camper may need during their stay. Founder Brad Guidi operates the camp with the help of several motivated volunteers. He dedicated the park to his late brother who was mentally handicapped.

The SigEps of Illinois Delta have called Camp Big Sky their primary Philanthropy for some years now. We had supported them by planning fundraisers throughout the semester to help raise money for the camp. In recent years, brothers have been traveling to the camp to help with the handy work.

One way we have helped raise money for the camp is by having our annual date auction. We auction off brothers to willing buyers from around the campus to come and pay for the company of a SigEp. This has not only been a profitable event, but quite a fun one as well.

About two or three times a semester, brothers will travel to the camp to help lend a hand. We help open and close the camp, doing general outdoor work such and collecting firewood or clearing trait of debris. The facilitators always treat us with fantastic hospitality. They treat the brothers to a fish fry after a day of work.
