Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity

Delta Gamma Chapter

In the Fall of 2016, Alpha Epsilon Pi colonized at GVSU. Since then, AEPi has made it a priority to make a positive impact at Grand Valley for the entire community. Logging more than hours of community service, raising money for the repair the world fund, having the top GPA in the IFC, and heavy campus involvement in a wide variety of clubs and organizations that shows the immense progress and engagement desired by the men of AEPi GVSU. In just two short years, AEPi received its charter in Phoenix, Arizona at the 105th International Convention in 2018, being recognized as an official chapter. 


As members of AEPi at Grand Valley State, we strive to make this fraternity a “learning laboratory” for our brothers who later become leaders in business, education, government, religion, and science. Our goal is to help each student develop character, responsibility, and a proper set of values and morals through living together in a brotherhood. Alpha Epsilon Pi will prepare young men for their role in life as responsible citizens and contributing members of society.

While Alpha Epsilon Pi is a newer fraternity at GVSU, the well-roundedness of the chapter makes it seem like it's been here for decades. United by Jewish values and engrained in the lifetime commitment of brotherhood, AEPi aims to give its members a home away from home. Alpha Epsilon Pi is only as strong as both the brothers and values that shape it, and through a well rounded social life, a tightly knit brotherhood, top academics, and community service, AEPi aims to give its members the most fulfilling college experience possible.

Internationally, Alpha Epsilon Pi is a very notable fraternity. It is in half a dozen countries: the United States, Canada, Austria, Israel, the United Kingdom, and Australia. The international reach is substantial, and each of the more than 102,000 initiated brothers are bonded through the same ritual. AEPi has an extensive list of notable alumni, including Mark Zuckerberg, the late Gene Wilder, Gary Bettman, Wolf Blitzer, and so many other prominent individuals in today's society.
