Greater Atlanta Alumni Association of Sigma Alpha Epsilon

Founders Day

Founders Day is celebrated every year on, or near, March 9th.  Some years we incorporate this celebration into our monthly luncheon, other years we hold an evening event at a private club, and include spouses.

This event provides an opportunity to recongnize the contributions of our members toward the betterment of the fraternity in the form of local and national awards.

The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others, rather than his own; and who appears well in any company, a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe.
