Greek Alums Celebrate 25th Anniversary

Alumni representing a multiple Greek organizations gathered last month during Homecoming to celebrate the 25th anniversary of UMBC’s chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity. Nearly 100 SAE alumni and active members attended the event at the Sheraton in Columbia on October 13, said Jim Lotfi ’89, visual and performing arts, who advises the student fraternity.

In addition to recognizing some of the group’s founding brothers, Hugh Clifton Carr, III ’89 and Shawn Walker ’99 were presented with the “Order of the Lion” for outstanding Alumni service to the fraternity, Lotfi said.

“I was very happy to see so many Alumni attend the reunion,” he said. “Many attendees hadn’t seen each other since graduation but we had conversations as if we had seen each other yesterday. The bonds we developed in the fraternity have lasted all these years.”

SAE was granted its charter at UMBC on October 10, 1987. Currently there are 29 active members on campus. Its mission, Lotfi said, is to promote the highest standards of friendship, scholarship, and service for our members based upon the ideals set forth by our Founders and as specifically enunciated in our creed, “The True Gentleman.” Visit the SAE site.

  1. So nice to see so many that I am proud to call brothers… Hadn’t seen some in 20 years and felt like we were just at the rat together last week…. I encourage anyone at UMBC to consider a fraternity or sorority, of course, specifically SAE!!!
