Sigma Alpha Epsilon

S A E House

National Founding: March 9, 1856
Local Founding: December 10, 1904

The Georgia Beta Chapter, founded December 31, 1865, was the first fraternity to be founded at The University of Georgia. It is the oldest chapter in continual existence and has initiated more members than any other chapter in the nation. 

The Alpha Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon was founded March 9, 1856, at The University of Alabama. SAE was the first fraternity to be founded in the South, the first fraternity to build a national head-quarters, and the first fraternity to found a leadership school for its members. Since its inception, it has grown to become one of the largest national social fraternities with over 200,000 initiates. 

Built in 1842, by architect and businessman Ross Crane, the 164-year-old columned mansion is considered one of three perfect examples of Southern architecture in America. The structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was also included in the Historic American Buildings Survey in 1963. It has been home to the SAE fraternity for more than fifty years. 

Each year SAE raises money for the Leukemia Society. The annual philanthropy drive honors a former brother named Hamm Ansley.
