Chapter Bio:

The men of the Sigma Nu Fraternity 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 oneself as a future leader of society. Our Scholarship plan stresses the importance of one’s classes while enrolled in college and makes sure that one prioritizes academics first. Sigma Nu also emphasizes the importance of giving back to the community and helping out with local and national Charities.

In the 2013-2014 academic year, the men of Sigma Nu raised the most money in a single philanthropy event which benefited St. Judes’ Children’s Hospital. The men of Sigma Nu also want their members to be involved in extracurricular activities 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.
