Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity will be moving into its new house on West 5th Street within the next month.
“It’s been a long time coming,” said Taylor Shull, a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. “Everyone is ready to see the finished project.”
Sigma Alpha Epsilon broke ground during Homecoming of 2012. Some members said the process has taken longer than they anticipated, but said it should be completed by the end of February.
The house will consist of eight bedrooms, two kitchens, six bathrooms, a study room, a chapter room, and a living room. With a few of the bedrooms being shared, 14 brothers will be living at the fraternity house.
Funding for the house has come from alumni, campaigning, and dues.
“Sigma Alpha Epsilon has been talking about getting a new house since the 80s,” said Vice President Ryan Gibbons. “You really have to give a huge thanks to the guys who stepped up and actually took the initiative to put the campaign in motion.”
