Both read the same word for word: "The mission of Sigma Alpha Epsilon is to promote the highest standards of friendship, scholarship, and service for our members based upon the ideals set forth by our Founders and as specifically enunciated in our creed."

Who copied whom?
This part is a bunch of self serving c**p:
"About Me:
Sigma Alpha Epsilon coming to the Philippines was a coincidence. An American Exhange scholar of the University of the Philippines, Los Banos campus happened to come across the S.A.E. (Society of Agricultural Engineers), a campus organization for agricultural engineering major. Thought that it was the Sigma Alpha Epsilon, he, being a member in the United States, tried to make contact. When he realized the coincidence, he persuaded the group to transform it into a colony of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon. That was still on the 1940's , so the fraternity did not grow because of the indifference by the University and the Government powered secret society. The Sigma Alpha Epsilon, locally established, faded and slowly become almost forgotten.

Two decades later, a group of agricultural engineering major in the Central Mindanao State University of Musuan, Bukidnon, recognized the Sigma Alpha Epsilon as an existing fraternity in 1965. They recruited not only agricultural engineering major but also from other fields of discipline courses. On September 9, 1966, the Philippine Government duly recognized the SIGMA ALPHA EPSILON as an existing fraternity both in the campus and in the whole country."

This is NOT how one becomes a chapter, let alone a colony.
And just because a National GOVERNMENT recognizes a group does NOT make it a part of an existing Fraternity.
"I know the plan that my friends always advise me to adopt:"Bolt her in, constrain her!" But who can watch the watchmen? They keep quiet about the girl's secrets and get her as their payment; everyone hushes it up."
