Ah, Thanksgiving. A time celebrated in America by eating way too much food, probably drinking too much, and falling asleep to football. But it also celebrated frequently by saying what exactly we’re thankful for this late autumn. Most people are thankful for their families, their friends, their own health and happiness. We hope that you are also thankful for your brotherhood at Sigma Phi Epsilon.

What memories are you thankful for from Sig Ep and UNC? We are absolutely sure there are some memories that will forever be locked in the vault and never talked about, but if you would like to share you can always share them below in the comments or sending them to This email address is being protected from spambots.

While you are enjoying your Thanksgiving meal, be thankful that you share the bond of brotherhood with these other accomplished alums:
