Building a Brotherhood Based on Love, Truth & Honor
Sigma Nu is different. We take pride in that. Especially in our ability to be leaders on and off campus. Our mission is:
To develop ethical leaders inspired by Love, Honor, and Truth.
To foster the personal growth of each man’s mind, heart, and character.
To perpetuate lifelong friendships and commitment to the Fraternity.
About Sigma Nu
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, North America’s first “Honor” fraternity was established.
Sigma Nu currently has 166 active chapters and colonies on college campuses throughout the United States, and has initiated over 235,000 members since its founding. The Zeta Upsilon Chapter of Sigma Nu Fraternity at Arizona State University was originally chartered in 1891 and has since initiated over 1,400 brothers. We are excited to announce that Sigma Nu Fraternity has returned to ASU as of Spring 2017.
