Joining a fraternity can be one of the most rewarding experiences you can have during your collegiate years. And, although “going Greek” is a lifetime commitment, choosing the right fraternity for you does not have to be a difficult decision. Simply decide what is most important to you in life and then find an organization that aligns with those values.
Taken directly from our mission statement, Sigma Nu Fraternity exists to develop ethical leaders inspired by our three founding principles of Love, Honor and Truth. Further, we work to develop the mind, heart and character of each of our members so they, too, can realize our vision of “Excelling with Honor.”
The Iota Lambda chapter’s dedication to grades makes them stand out among other JSU fraternities:
“Sigma Nu has one of the highest GPA’s on campus. We prepare guys for the future, we won the gold cup metal, and we rank # 1. We are easygoing, fun loving group, that focuses on our priority by excelling in our grades by having study groups. We help guys focus on what they are in school for.” – Sigma Nu Commander
“I chose Sigma Nu because they have good personalities. All the guys are different, and they do not have the exact same personalities like the other fraternities. It’s a different atmosphere and you can learn from different people.” – New Member
Sigma Nu opposes the practice of Hazing
People often associate hazing with fraternities. Sigma Nu is unique in the fact that we were founded based on honor, which stems from our founders rebelling against the common practice of hazing at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia. That principle still holds true today.
Sigma Nu is the ONLY Honor Fraternity
Our founders at Virginia Military Institute lived by a code of Honor. The Honor system at VMI requires each cadet to conform to the duty imposed by his conscience that each act be governed by a high sense of Honor. We were the first Fraternity to be founded upon this honor principle. When lived out in the bonds of fraternal brotherhood, the Honor principle brings a level of integrity and excellence that is uncommon in the world today.
Tomorrow’s Traditions Start with Someone – That Someone is You. While you are looking for the right fraternity, we hope you seriously consider what Sigma Nu has to offer – it could be one of the best decisions you will ever make.
