Sigma Phi Epsilon of Fort Hays State University was recognized by the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) for its outstanding academic achievement during the spring semester of 2012-13.
The NIC requires member fraternity chapters to meet certain academic requirements in order to receive recognition. Fraternities must rank first on their campus academically among other NIC member fraternities and have an annual un-weighted GPA at least .50 points above their campus's all-male average GPA.
Sigma Phi Epsilon of FHSU is one of 22 different fraternity chapters across the country to receive this recognition. "We are proud to acknowledge the chapters who have exceeded their peers' performance in academics," said NIC president and CEO Pete Smithhisler. "The men in these 22 chapters are holding themselves to a higher standard, which epitomizes the spirit of fraternity done right."
