While the Colorado State University Gamma experience is certainly more than the bricks and mortar of their Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter house, it undoubtedly plays a significant role in the development of undergraduate brothers and serves as a proud symbol of shared values and goals.

Built in 1929, 121 East Lake Street has been a part of Colorado’s legacy for 78 years. Through good stewardship the house has lasted over 84 years, but it has become necessary to make a major investment in the house.
