The Balanced Man Program

Here at SigEp we don't believe life is a pass fail which is why instead on one semester of pledging we have the Balance Man Program (BMP). SigEp’s Balanced Man Program provides the structure, support and guidance required for today’s student to fully utilize the 90 percent of college they spend outside of classroom walls. Based on equal rights and responsibilities for all members, the program’s progressive challenges provide brothers the opportunity to grow and fine-tune skills they can’t get in the classroom. Alumni, volunteers and university faculty and administration serve as mentors in the program, providing accountability and support. BMP programming helps young brothers strengthen their character. It enables our young men to build leadership and communication skills and develop healthy, lifelong relationships.

The Balanced Man Program is the core of the SigEp experience. Through it, we encourage our brothers to challenge themselves and continuously grow throughout their time in college, focusing on personal, academic, leadership, and professional development.

 

At the University of Florida, the goal of the Balanced Man Program is to help our brothers to grow and achieve through Chapter-wide opportunities such as:

  • Academic coaching, subsidized tutoring services, and a focused Chapter culture to help our brothers achieve their academic goals and maintain our status of Highest Cumulative Chapter GPA (3.7).

  • A semesterly brotherhood retreat and monthly trips such as chartered fishing, snorkeling/diving, canoeing, etc. to help brothers bond and unplug.

  • Emphasizing Sound Body, we offer access to personal fitness training and assessments, high-intensity group workouts, professional nutrition education, and frequent organized sports, to encourage our brothers to pursue an active lifestyle.

  • High-level networking opportunities, all-star alumni panels, and access to professional mentors to aid in brothers’ professional development.

  • An immersive campus involvement program, offering preparation and training for a diverse number of campus opportunities. Our chapter brothers are involved in many student organizations including multiple college Councils, Florida Cicerones, Varsity Athletics, Student Government, Dance Marathon, the Freshman Leadership Council, Florida Blue Key, and many more.
