About RSE
RSE is the only local fraternity at RPI. Our freedom to set our own policies and make our own decisions are a great advantage to our overall experience. Our members major not only in engineering, but also in each of the Sciences, Management and Architecture. 80% of our Brothers are involved in clubs and student groups, many in leadership positions. We have been Interfraternity Volleyball Champions 2 years in a row. We field teams competitively in Soccer, Football, Softball, Basketball and Volleyball.

Our membership is open to all students, undergraduate and graduate students, at RPI. We select our members on the basis of character, attitude, personality and ideals. Since our founding, members have directed their efforts into many areas. We take great pride in this diversity of interests. We are also very proud of the ties, traditions and mutual feeling of giving which binds us together in a brotherhood more than a century old

The Rensselaer Society of Engineers donates many hours and dollars each year to various organizations around the world. Through Children International, RSE supports a Colombian boy, José, as he struggles to grow up in poverty. José mails the brothers crayon drawings as a sign of his appreciation. RSE also hosts an annual breakfast to raise money for The Children’s Miracle Network. This is the one time a year students and professors can enjoy a famed McRSE. The breakfast has become very popular amongst professors who will order sandwiches to be delivered to their offices.
