Sigma Phi Delta: A Social Engineering Fraternity

Filed under Student Organizations on January 23, 2017.

Sigma Phi Delta is the Premier International Fraternity of Engineers. Being the University of Florida’s only social engineering fraternity, Sigma Phi Delta prides itself in its ability to foster Brotherhood, camaraderie, leadership and teamwork. Open to all students, especially those with an Engineering background, it attends to both the social and professional needs of engineers.

Men join as individuals and form lifelong bonds with other like-minded students. Joining Sigma Phi Delta helps a man develop the skills, confidence, morality, and sense of teamwork necessary to become an excellent engineer.

The benefits of Sigma Phi Delta include:

1) A great support system for weathering the rigors of the engineering curriculum at UF

2) A close bond of brotherhood that endures throughout the years beyond graduation

3) Thousands of engineering alumni worldwide and a professional network of strong leaders

4) Most of all, the men of Sigma Phi Delta comprise the most exclusive fraternity on any campus, a fraternity of engineers.

Sigma Phi Delta is unlike any other fraternity on campus because they realize that if we embodied the typical fraternity stereotype they wouldn’t last long as engineers. On the other hand, they realize that there also exists a negative stereotype regarding what people expect when they interact with engineers.

Sigma Phi Delta attempts to strike the fine balance that exists between these social and professional worlds. They invite you to meet their young brotherhood at the University of Florida and see for yourself what exactly constitutes a fraternity of engineers.

Join the brothers of Sig Phi at their house, 30 SW 23rd Terrace, during rush week from January 30-February 3 to see what makes their fraternity the best on campus.
