DeKalb student joins Monmouth fraternity

Published: Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Jacob Marx of DeKalb has joined Sigma Phi Epsilon, a national fraternity at Monmouth College.

The Greek life community at Monmouth has been an important part of the college for more than 140 years. Monmouth is the founding college of women’s fraternities Pi Beta Phi (1867) and Kappa Kappa Gamma (1870).

There are currently eight active organizations on campus, and Greeks make up nearly one quarter of Monmouth’s student population. The college’s chapters take academic excellence seriously, which they consistently display by keeping their GPA higher than the all-campus average. 

Marx is the son of David and Dawn Marx of DeKalb.
