Sigma Alpha Epsilon at Dartmouth College was founded in 1903 as a local fraternity named Chi Tau Kappa. In 1908, the fraternity sought to associate itself with a national fraternity and was granted a charter from Sigma Alpha Epsilon to became the New Hampshire Alpha chapter. With funding support from the national organization, the fraternity acquired a house on School Street. By 1916, the fraternity had moved to a wood house on College Street north of the Green. The fraternity would replace the structure entirely with a new brick residence built between 1928 and 1931, one of the final fraternity building projects started on campus before the Great Depression. 

A little more information about us

Our goal here at Dartmouth College is the cultivation of character, learning, and enduring friendships. We carry out this objective by providing community service to the Upper Valley, bringing important speakers to campus through our Scarlett program, and providing a safe and fun social outlet for the students of Dartmouth College. We do these things among others all in the context of following the values set forth by the True Gentleman.
