Our Creed: The True Gentleman
The True Gentleman Experience
The True Gentleman Experience is a holistic educational program for Sigma Alpha Epsilon members that provides a well-rounded learning experience throughout all of their collegiate academic years. In addition, the comprehensive program allows them to develop personally and professionally and calls upon resources to help our members become gentlemen, scholars, stewards and leaders in their respective communities.
The True Gentlemen Experience also provides standards and requirements that hold our members accountable. Our education and development takes place on an individually chosen basis, much like fulfilling a degree or course of study. The experience allows our chapters and colonies to access best practices and programs but also allows them to maintain positive, local programming that may be approved by advisers and staff.
The experience is divided into five major parts to correspond with the progression of a member through his learning and development each year of school: the Baseline Experience, the Loyalty Experience, the Friendship Experience, the Honor Experience and the Fraternity Experience.
