Chapter Bio:


The men of Sigma Nu fraternity have recently re-founded the Chapter in the Fall of 2010 on The University of Akron’s Campus.  Since then, they have been working diligently and striving to become another crucial asset to the wonderful Greek Community that The University of Akron possesses.  The men of Sigma Nu at Akron push their members to be all that they can be by living up to the three core values of Love, Honor, and Truth.  These three values are the central framework that helps shape a college boy into a fraternity man.

Sigma Nu focuses on academics, philanthropy, campus involvement, and bettering yourself as a future leader of society.  Our Scholarship plan that we have in tact stresses the importance of your classes while enrolled in college and makes sure that you prioritize academics first.  Sigma Nu also emphasizes the importance of giving back to the community and helping out with local and national Charities.  In the 2012-2013 academic year, the men of Sigma Nu put in over 800 philanthropic hours to help several different Charities, one of which includes our helping hand initiative, St. Judes’ Childrens Hospital.  The men of Sigma Nu also want their members to be involved in extra-curriculars outside of the classroom as well.  You will find Sigma Nu’s in the residence halls as Resident Assistants and Community Assistants, in the Student Union working in the operations or maintenance departments, in the rec center, and in other various student organizations which allows for great networking.  In Sigma Nu, you will maximize your potential and find out how far you can push yourself to excel in all different facets of life.
