Wherever you are, SigEps are a vital part of the cultural and professional landscape. Here, we highlight a few of the notable brothers and locations that make San Antonio a great place to live or visit.
Texas Theta chapter, St. Mary’s University
The chapter currently has more than two dozen members and holds the second highest fraternity GPA on campus. The chapter also has nearly 600 living alumni.
One of the city’s most scenic attractions, the River Walk is a 15-mile-long park steps away from the Alamo. A year-round destination for shopping, dining, nightlife and special events, it’s popular with locals and tourists alike.
The Grand Hyatt San Antonio River Walk will host SigEp’s 58th Grand Chapter Conclave, Aug. 2-6, 2023.
News buffs can keep up with the latest in town by watching KENS5. Former reporter and current assistant news director James Keith, Sam Houston State ’03, has all the info to keep viewers in the know.
A Great Place to Work
Citation recipients, chapter brothers and childhood friends Charlie Amato, Sam Houston State ’70, and Gary Dudley, ’69, co-founded SWBC, a financial services company perennially listed as one of the best places to work in the city.
Looking for a heart-pumping good time? Catch a home game of the five-time NBA champion San Antonio Spurs. Dudley and Amato (see above) are investors in the team.
