Sigma Alpha Epsilon provides young men many important skill sets and advantages in college, and in life beyond at both personal and professional levels. In a critical moment of development, SAE surrounds its members with key pillars of maturity and positive growth; Scholarship, Leadership, Friendship, and Service.

You will hold mission critical positions within the fraternal organization that provide young men invaluable lessons in responsibility and being a part of a larger team that works together to accomplish greater goals.
You will be responsible for projects that hone your organizational and leadership abilities.
You will further develop the very human instinct to dedicate time in your life to help others who may not be as fortunate as you.
Your teammates will inspire you to reach your highest potential while you make lifelong friendships that will last a lifetime.
As you transition from being mentored to becoming a mentor, you will join an alumni team of SAE's from The University of Montana going back 7 or 8 decades, most of whom are still active in business and in leadership if not ownership positions. It is a Fraternal Brotherhood that transcends age or rank or status.
When we gather, we all share memories of our time living in the same beautiful mansion on University Avenue, our walk to campus, our nicknames and how they were earned, and what our time in that chapter has done for us after college and how much it means to all of us to this day.

Five years later they transformed to the National fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon. SAE was closed in 1943 due to WWII, as the vast majority of men were enlisted, and reopened in 1944.
