A Message from Our President


My name is James Vaughan and I am the current president of Sigma Eta Pi at UCLA. It is my honor to welcome you to the west coast’s premier entrepreneurship fraternity.

Joining Sigma Eta Pi has been the best and most valuable decision that I have made at UCLA. It was the first student group that I joined during my first quarter here and it has remained a top priority for me over the past three-and-a-half years. Through SEP I have found mentors, business partners, role models, teammates, and my best friends that I’ve made in college. SEP has some of the most motivated and inspiring students on campus as its members and being surrounded by them has helped push me to achieve my goals in college, whether they be entrepreneurial, academic, or personal. I can’t overstate how valuable a close group of motivated and encouraging friends can be, and I am constantly thankful for SEP for teaching me that.

If this sounds exciting to you, please come join us at our upcoming Spring Rush during Week 1 of Spring quarter. Our rush events provide a time for you to learn more about the fraternity and get to know the current brothers and sisters and to ask any questions you may have about it.

I look forward to meeting you at rush!

James Vaughan
