EVANSVILLE, Ind. - Matthew Roberts, of Marietta, has joined Sigma Alpha Epsilon at the University of Evansville.
Roberts, who is studying Environmental Science, officially became a new member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon after a week-long recruitment process that allowed potential new members to learn about Greek life and discover what each chapter has to offer. Roberts is one of 159 UE students who joined fraternities and sororities at the conclusion of Fall 2012 recruitment.
"The University of Evansville Greek system is one of the best in the country. Outstanding scholarship, remarkable service, vitality, and friendship are the foundational pieces that make our program exceptional," said Dana Clayton, UE vice president for student affairs and dean of students. "The men and women who belong to our fraternities and sororities are some of the highest profile leaders on campus, both in and outside the classroom. Our Greek students play a major role in shaping the campus community."
The University of Evansville's Greek system consists of six national fraternities, four national sororities, and one local sorority. Approximately 25 percent of the University's undergraduate students participate in Greek life. Together, they maintain a combined GPA that surpasses the campus average. Each year, the Greek community raises more than $50,000 for charity and performs more than 9,000 hours of community service.
"By joining Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Matthew Roberts has become part of a solid legacy of leadership and scholarship," Clayton added. "Going Greek is an experience that will serve students such as Matthew well beyond their college years."
