The Tragos Quest to Greece changes the way brothers view the world, their Fraternity and themselves. Guided by alumni mentors and university faculty, Tragos Quest to Greece Scholars study the influence that Greek philosophy, governance and the arts has and continues to have in everyday life. Brothers explore Greek culture and contemplate the origins of SigEp’s values and the Balanced Man ideal.
The program includes visits to ancient historical sites such as Athens, Delphi, Nauplion, Corinth, Mycenae and Olympia. Brothers explore the foundations of the fraternal world, experience SigEp’s ritual in a new light and study the philosophies of Socrates and Aristotle while walking the same streets where those great minds taught.
The Quest study abroad experience is unprecedented and unmatched in the fraternity world. The program is named for and made possible by a generous gift from Past Grand President William G. Tragos, Washington in St. Louis ’56, and his wife, Lilli. Due to the generosity of all of the program's donors, SigEp is able to provide this experience free of charge to the undergraduate scholars selected.
The 2021 Tragos Quest to Greece will be held August 5-15, 2021. View the 2021 presentation ceremony and scholars below:
