Comments (primary residence)

"As a gay male, I have never felt unconfortable within my own fraternity when it comes to my sexuality. One of the founding members of our chapter is gay so homophobia never really had a chance to seep into the culture here."

"I'd say we're very accepting of the LGBT community. Personally I've got a roommate that's gay and I'm totally fine with it. I feel really comfortable around all of my bros that are a part of the LGBT community."

"For a while one of the brothers that was gay had a crush on me, but I quickly diffused that after I found out - didn't want to lead anyone on!"

"I was actually brought into SAE by Chase Anderson, a gay student - wouldn't be here without him most likely. SAE to my knowledge has always been a very safe and accepting place for LGBT students. "

"Living in SAE has shown me that even traditional fraternities can be entirely accepting and supporting of gay men."

"I never had significant personal exposure to the LGBT community until becoming brothers with some some truly amazing gay men."

Comments (secondary residence)

"Sigma Alpha Epsilon is an incredibly welcoming Fraternity that has welcomed and continued to welcome people of all walks of life."
