CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- During this year's Homecoming celebration, Alpha Chi Epsilon (AXE) and Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) fraternities will celebrate a combined 100 years of tradition and service.
The legacy of brotherhood began at UNI when local fraternity AXE was established in 1915. Fifty years later, AXE sought affiliation with a national fraternity and chose SAE. UNI's Iowa Chi Chapter of SAE was chartered in 1965.
The dual-fraternity celebration will begin at 6 p.m., Friday, Oct. 16, with a reception and banquet in the Old Central Ballroom in Maucker Union.
There will be a fraternity and sorority life update at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 17, followed by a tour of the SAE house at 10:30 a.m. The Homecoming parade, which can be viewed on the chapter house lawn, will begin at 11 a.m. Following the parade, there will be a tree dedication by Maucker Union; unveiling the plaque commemorating 100 years of AXE/SAE service.
The alumni tailgate will take place from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. west of the UNI-Dome, and the football game will begin at 4 p.m., against Western Illinois. An informal social will take place at the Comfort Suites in Cedar Falls following the game.
All brothers are welcome and encouraged to attend. For additional celebration information or to RSVP, visit www.unialum.org/AXE-SAE2015 or call 888-UNI ALUM.
