Congratulations to the newly initated brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon! Newly iniated: Sean Plunkett, Rod Janz, Kyle Kliebhan, Jake Thompson, Vito Notarnicola, Carlos Martinez, Michael Kaper, and Kevin McCarte.
SAE IL-Gamma chapter is one of the few chapters in the nation that is able to get initiated in the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity national headquarters, The Levere Memorial Temple, (located in Evanston, IL, Northwestern University) every semester.
The Sigma Alpha Epsilon Foundation owns, operates and maintains the Levere Memorial Temple. This gothic style building was built in 1929-1930 to serve as a war memorial and administrative facility for the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and Sigma Alpha Epsilon Foundation. The Temple not only houses the fraternity offices but many historical SAE treasures including the minutes from the first meeting of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, artifacts from fraternity founders and famous alumni. The Temple’s collection also contains items with national and international importance such as a copy of the Nuremburg Chronicle and a painting of President William McKinley that is one of the few painted while he was in office.
