Sigma Alpha Epsilon (or SAE) was found in Alabama in 1856. At Clemson in 1956 Architecture Professor Joseph L. Young founded the Numeral Society. His goal of the Numeral Society was to create a social organization whose purpose was to design and build a homecoming float for Clemson University. The Numeral Society was the first social fraternity at Clemson University. On April 11, 1970 the Numeral Society accepted a charter from Sigma Alpha Epsilon and officially changed its name. Sigma Alpha Epsilon still is responsible for building the homecoming float that carries the homecoming queen onto the field in Clemson's Death Valley. Clemson SAE was removed from campus in 2015 and is scheduled to return in 2019.
