Pi Sigma Epsilon was founded at Georgia State University (then Atlanta Division of the University of Georgia) in fall of 1951. The idea of a professional fraternity for the fields of Marketing, Sales Management, and Selling was proposed by educator and businessman Lloyd Antle and advanced by Henry G. Baker and William G. Harris from the College and Lewis F. Gordon, a founder of the Atlanta Sales Executives Club.
The first organizational meeting was on November 1, 1951 and at that meeting the purpose was set out. Alpha Chapter was established at the college on June 2, 1952.
The Omicron Chapter of Pi Sigma Epsilon is dedicated to brotherhood, professional development and personal growth. The University at Buffalo is proud to be the home of the Omicron chapter, originally chartered in 1960. We are currently one of the oldest active PSE chapters in the nation.
Pi Sigma Epsilon is the only co-ed nationally recognized professional organization in marketing, sales, and management. PSE is the only collegiate fraternity that gives students real world and hands on experience in the marketing and selling professions.
Collegiate members in PSE participate in planning, organizing, leading, and implementing a variety of projects ranging from simple fundraising to complex marketing. They also partake in professional development programs, sessions, and activities that help them prepare for their careers after they graduate. Members gain a business advantage for life as they grow professionally and learn from experience.
