After competing against all university Alpha Epsilon Pi chapters in the southeastern region, Florida Atlantic’s Phi Alpha Chapter came out as the clear victor — winning in all categories.

The Alpha Epsilon Pi Southeastern Regional Conclave was held at the University of Florida in Gainesville from Jan. 30 to Feb. 1, and opened its doors to all 20 chapters in the Southeastern United States, 10 coming from the state of Florida.

The conclave had chapters compete for three awards — “Most Outstanding Delegation,” which is given out each year, “Most Spirited Delegation” and “Most Outstanding Delegates.” The 51 Florida Atlantic University students representing the Phi Alpha chapter won out in all three categories, effectively taking home all three awards.

“We were beyond honored to represent Alpha Epsilon Pi at this year’s Southern Conclave,” said AEPi president Daniel Horn. “Not only is attending the event both fun and educational, but I am more than proud to say that we are the first chapter in our international organization’s 101-year history to win every single award at this convention.”

He continued with, “This is only the beginning of FAU AEPi’s bright future, and I am excited for what lies ahead.”

FAU’s AEPi Chapter was chartered in 1989, making it the second-oldest organization on campus. The organization joins 16 other active fraternities on the FAU campus and is dedicated to “providing opportunities for the Jewish college man seeking the best possible college and fraternity experience,” according to the chapter’s website.

This is an achievement that the chapter is proud of and one that will mark history for the organization. The experience of the conclave also allows for members of the organization to have something to be extremely proud of and look to as a learning experience.

“As a new member of Alpha Epsilon Pi, I cannot express how valuable this experience has been,” said freshman and member of AEPi Jacob Penzer. “We learned so much about growing a successful and responsible Greek letter organization.”
