Things we do
Rush is nothing more than a process of making friends. The Sigma Alpha Epsilon Idaho Alpha chapter attracts a large variety of men. Lifelong friendships gained from the acceptance of this fraternity are priceless! SAE requires all chapters to conduct dry rush and has a strong policy against hazing.
"The Fraternity...grew quietly and silently from a seed planted in the hearts of its eight founders long before they dreamed what the fruit of that seed would be. The seed was friendship. From a college companionship, in which these eight men shared, there was a gradual evolution which resulted in the birth of the fraternity." - Billy Levere
WELCOME TO RUSH WEEK!
Come RUSH with SAE!...RUSH Information Below & Events....See you here! BE TRUE.
The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others, rather than his own; and who appears well in any company, a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe.
-John Walter Wayland (Virginia, 1899)
