Sigma Nu Fraternity is a group of men committed to the values of Love, Honor, and Truth. At Virginia Tech, we have embodied the spirit of Ut Prosim for nearly 50 years. Sigma Nu was founded as a non-hazing fraternity and remains committed to that value. Our chapter has never had its charter revoked since our establishment at Tech in 1970.
Our fraternity house is located at 401 Progress street NE. It is in downtown Blacksburg and just five minutes away from campus. Our chapter currently has 50 brothers. Sigma Nu fraternity can provide its brothers with many opportunities ranging from community service and academic assistance to interpersonal relationships and social experiences. Education is very important to Sigma Nu, and we encourage our brothers to use each other as academic resources for studying and useful advice. At Sigma Nu, our fraternal relationships continue past college; we have a strong alumni base and many of our alumni frequently return for alumni events, house touch-ups, and football games.

Hazing: Sigma Nu fraternity was founded as a non-hazing fraternity. The mentality of hazing strongly conflicts with the ideals of Sigma Nu. Our fraternity does not support or practice forced drinking, PT, or other forms of hazing, as hazing is counterproductive and ineffective at creating a strong brotherhood. Sigma Nu participates in many anti-hazing programs, including national hazing prevention week. To learn more about what Sigma Nu is doing to eliminate hazing, visit our Sigma Nu National Website.
