Our Brotherhood

The idea of Brotherhood is in every fraternity. In Sigma Nu, Brotherhood is extremely important, and in our Chapter the idea of Brotherhood is actually practiced. Don’t join Sigma Nu to make friends; join to gain lifelong brothers.

Our Principles

Love, Truth, and Honor are the guiding principles of our Fraternity. Our Founders dreamt to instill in every Sigma Nu the ideal of Honor, and through our Chapter their dream is realized.

No Hazing

Since its founding, our Fraternity has led the campaign against the system of hazing.


Our Chapter sees the education of its members about leadership to be extremely important. There are leadership opportunities through our LEAD Program and through the leadership positions in the Chapter, which are open for those wanting to lead no matter age.


Our Chapter is active in philanthropy in contributing and working for many local and national organizations. We help largely with Up ‘Til Dawn, and we also hold an annual fundraiser known as Paladia for charity.
