The members of the Minnesota Alpha chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon are saddened, disgusted, and embarrassed by the recent events at the University of Oklahoma. We apologize for the sickening behavior of those in the video, and are disappointed that the values and ideals of so many can be diminished by the sad actions of so few. This event does not represent what Sigma Alpha Epsilon is as a whole.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon teaches its brothers to live in a way consistent with the values expressed in The True Gentleman. The True Gentleman teaches sincerity, sympathy, honor and virtue, and the members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon strive to behave in a way that embodies these noble ideals.
The University of Oklahoma's chapter has been closed and is no longer affiliated with Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Minnesota Alpha supports this response taken by our national governing body, and is proud of our leadership for taking prompt and appropriate action regarding the revolting video.
