National History

Alpha Epsilon Pi, the Global Jewish Fraternity, was founded to provide opportunities for Jewish men seeking the best possible college and fraternity experience. We have maintained the integrity of our purpose by strengthening our ties to the Jewish community and serving as a link between high school and career. Alpha Epsilon Pi develops leadership for the North American Jewish community at a critical time in a young man's life. Alpha Epsilon Pi's role is to encourage the Jewish student to remain dedicated to Jewish ideals, values, and ethics and to prepare the student to be one of tomorrow's leaders so that he may help himself, his family, his community, and his people.

Alpha Epsilon Pi was founded on November 17, 1913 under the Washington Square Arch at New York University. The Omicron Upsilon Chapter was founded in 1977 and re-chartered in 1999. AEPi is housed at 28 North College Street, and is a member of the Interfraternity Council.
