Happy Founder's Day to the brothers of SAE!

SAE is one of the country’s oldest and largest fraternities, founded on March 9, 1856, at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. SAE's founders were Noble Leslie DeVotie, Nathan Elams Cockrell, John Barratt Rudulph, John Webb Kerr, Samuel Marion Dennis, Wade Hampton Foster, Abner Edwin Patton, and Thomas Chappell Cook.

SAE has a long history of firsts. They were the first fraternity to create a leadership education program. One of the first to eliminate pledging, and were the first to ban hard alcohol from all events and activities.

The impact and history that SAE has made on Monmouth College can still be felt in today's Greek Life! Happy Founders Day!


Here's to the women who inspire us, challenge us, and lead the way. Happy International Women's Day!

Our Scot Sweethearts for February are Bryan ’22 and Shepherd ’22 (Coventon) Peters!

"We technically met through Snapchat. In the spring prior to our Freshman year, Monmouth created a page for the Class of 2022. Some students decided to create a snapchat group from that, and we added most people in the class through those groups. Shepherd and I added each other this way and started randomly snapchatting outside of the group chats. At the time we were both in separate relationships so it was very plutonic and we weren't looking to date. Towards the end of summer, both of our relationships reached their end as we went away for college. When arriving on campus, we hit it off well and had a great friend group. Within a few weeks, it was clear that there were some sparks. By October we were dating and haven't looked back since. We have been together for around 5 1/2 years and married for just under 2 years."
