Sigma Alpha Epsilon, is the largest fraternity on campus, which was instated as a colony in 2013 and was founded only two years ago.

“I helped start the fraternity as an interest group back in 2012 and we’ve gone from seven founding members to 24 members,” said Stephen Amaya, senior.

Amaya has been involved in the campus community by serving as a founding member of Knights of the Roundtable and president of the student programming board, and he even gives tours to prospective families.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon is the largest social fraternity in the nation and promotes the ideals of its creed, the “True Gentleman.” They believe in promoting the highest ideals of scholarship, service and friendship.

“I love being apart of SAE because of the bonds I share with my brothers,” said Amaya. “Growing up I was the only boy and the middle child out of five kids, so being a part of a brotherhood is great because now I have brothers I know will be there for me through thick or thin.”

As founding members of their fraternity, the brothers get to enjoy creating their own traditions and memorable events for the campus to enjoy.

“I get to leave behind a legacy and that’s pretty awesome because years from now, hopefully my tradition will carry on,” said Amaya.

Fraternities provide not only brotherhood and a fun social aspect of college, they also create life long connections and opportunities for students. The brothers are all involved in the campus community by attending many athletic games and helping the local community.

“I was skeptical about joining a fraternity when I first came to Lynn. I never thought I’d start my very own fraternity on campus, or that I would have 23 brothers,” said Amaya. “My fraternity means everything to me and if any guys are interested in SAE or Greek Life, they can come speak to me.”
