The Brother Mentor Challenge is for the SigEp who is ready to graduate. Brother Mentors are required to work on his resume each semester, serve as a leader in the chapter and another organization, be a mentor for the Epsilon Challenge, and continue to participate in other chapter activities. The Brother Mentor has an option to declare his intent to become a Sigma Phi Epsilon Fellow.The Brother-Mentor Challenge truly is the most unique. Brother mentors are elder members of the Fraternity that have accomplished a lot in their time. Brother mentors do not take a large role in the execution of chapter activities but rather mentor those who are currently running the fraternity. This semester the brother mentor challenge also has two additional goals.
