The decision to attend Stanford was one of the most significant choices you ever had to make. The next three or four (or five or six or seven...) years of your life will not only be demanding and rigorous, but also enlightening, rewarding, and fun. You are now freer than ever before to be yourself and to chose your friends. Now, all you have to decide is who you want to be.
This is what fraternity is about—this is what AEPi is about. Fraternity membership will provide you with an outlet for social connections around campus and friends who are up for doing whatever, whenever. Most importantly, it supplies lasting memories and lifelong friendships formed and tightened around a bond of brotherhood. One of the best things about being part of a fraternity is knowing that there is always someone who’s got your back. It truly is a family. More than that, it is a relaxed family that will teach you and learn from you. Looking back when you’ve finally graduated, you’ll be able to say that Stanford was more than problem sets, essays, and exams; the lessons you learn from this family will form the second half of your Stanford education.
AEPi has a very strong presence on campus, with strong ties to the Jewish community, good sorority relationships, a tradition of community service, and, of course, unique parties like the fall Banzai Bash and quarterly Margarita Nights.
Our social schedule keeps us busy all year long. All-campus parties and formals give us the chance to relax and have fun, and we always try to schedule special events and road trips. In the past, we’ve partied with AEPi and sorority chapters at UCLA, USC, UCSB, ASU, San Jose State, and San Diego State; we’ve ventured to Hawaii and Mexico on spring break trips; and we’ve spent various weekends at both Lake Tahoe and San Francisco. In short, brothers are constantly planning events—currently, we are looking forward to our triumphant return to Mexico for spring break, a camping trip, and various social events on campus. We are, however, more than a social organization: AEPi brothers are active leaders in Hillel, intramural sports, KZSU, Stanford Symphony and Jazz Orchestras, Stanford Israel Alliance, The Stanford Daily, community service groups, and dorm staff.
Membership also includes massive alumni connections. Our chapter maintains great relationships with alumni, some of whom are leaders in finance, law, medicine, business and technology—not to mention that AEPi National has global connections in every job sector imaginable. (Did you know that Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is an AEPi?)
We are a brotherhood of individuals with diverse ethnic, religious, and political backgrounds who come together to have fun and add a little bit of spice to campus life. It’s a fraternity for men who want to be more than just frat boys.
