Balanced Man Program
Ancient Greece was once the height of human ingenuity. What is now
common science, philosophy, athletics and more, found much of it's
footing in ancient Greece. The people who made these discoveries were
centered on living well-rounded balanced lives. SigEp holds similar
ideals in it's Balanced Man program by focusing on mentoring in the
Balanced Man program, the two main areas of which are Sound Mind and
Sound Mind is more than just academics. It is creativity, critical thought, and knowledge.
The Sound Mind is sharp and clever, thoughtful and reflective. Many chapters have formal dining etiquette training for their members and teach them swing, salsa, and ballroom dancing. Many chapters host philosophy, religion, and political science professors to talk on current events, politics, and how to make an impact in todays world with the understanding that the pursuit of knowledge is unending.
Sound Body is more than just athletics. It is total wellness, conditioning, and health.
The Sound Body is ready and able, robust and nourished. Many chapters have begun to educate their members on how to prepare healthier meals, how to self-screen for testicular cancer- a leading health threat to young men, and how to properly manage stress, time and personal mental health with techniques such as yoga, CPR and other life-saving practices. Many chapters host dieticians, doctors, coaches and other speakers to discuss relevant health and wellness issues with their members to help them live their best lives.
As a chapter, we support the Best Buddies program. This organization provides activities for those with special needs. We have hosted events and donated proceeds from our fundraisers to support this group.
