Academic success is something which the ΣΑΕΠ chapter at Binghamton University places a strong emphasis on. Sisters are committed to thriving academically, which is clearly reflected in the overall consistently high chapter GPA! We have several programs in place to encourage sisters to reach their full academic potential. Sisters motivate and support each other in achieving academic success. Additionally, the broad scope of interests amongst sisters includes majors like Nursing, Graphic Design, Management, English, Psychology, History, and so much more!
