"The True Gentleman." That is the creed of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and its members have memorized it since the fraternity's establishment at the University of Alabama in 1856. The organization's history is a storied one: it is the only national social fraternity existing today that was founded in the Antebellum South. Perhaps that long-running legacy is what inspired these stars to pledge SAE. Some celebrities in SAE are musicians while other famous Sigma Alpha Epsilons are professional athletes. Even a few famous politicians are members of SAE.
Who will you find on this list of famous SAEs? Saturday Night Live funnyman David Spade joined the fraternity while attending Arizona State University. Fred Savage joined Sigma Alpha Epsilon at Stanford University, and Sam Elliot was a member during his time at Cal State Los Angeles. Beau Bridges and his father, Lloyd Bridges, are also SAE brothers. And not all of these famous people are performers – President William McKinley also pledged the purple and gold while attending Mount Union College.
