Sigma Nu loves to give back.  During the year we participate in philanthropy, community service, and charity events that extend a helping hand from our chapter to the public platform.  Check out the list of groups we help here.


Sigma Nu's past is a proud and colorful one. Founded by three cadets at the Virginia Military Institute in a period of civil strife known as the Reconstruction, Sigma Nu represented a radical departure from the times. The system of physical abuse and hazing of underclassmen at VMI led to James Frank Hopkins, Greenfield Quarles, and James McIlvaine Riley to form the "Legion of Honor" which soon became Sigma Nu Fraternity. So, amidst a backdrop of turmoil, on January 1st 1869, North America's first "Honor" fraternity was established.

Sigma Nu is an International Fraternity of men dedicated to the ideals of Love, Honor and Truth. Since our founding in 1869, our goals have always been the same: to develop ethical leaders, to foster personal development and growth, and to create lifelong friendships. These simple goals, grounded by our ideals, are what keep Sigma Nu excelling with Honor.
