The men of Sigma Nu carry a strong presence on campus. Many brothers participate in varsity athletics. We have many greek intramural teams consistently making the playoffs and we have a strong prescence at the annual Greek Games. 4 brothers have seats on Rose-Hulman's Inter Fraternal Council. The brothers of Sigma Nu are notorious for always being seen together, whether they are walking to class, eating lunch, working out, or partying. Join us in our Campus Domination

Headquartered in Lexington, Virginia Sigma Nu Fraternity was founded in 1869 at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington. Sigma Nu currently has over 180 active chapters and colonies on college campuses throughout the United States and Canada, and has initiated over 219,000 members since its founding.
The Beta Upsilon chapter of the Sigma Nu fraternity has been a part of the Rose-Hulman community since 1896 and is the second oldest fraternity at the school. During our 112 years of existence, we have groomed nearly 2,000 men to be leaders of the world around us, and we have instilled in them the values necessary to complement a Rose-Hulman education in order to be successful in today's world.

The brothers of Sigma Nu are a very close group of men. The men of Sigma Nu take pride in the values of honor, truth, and love that the fraternity holds dear and remains steadfast to the beliefs that tie all of the brothers together. The men of Sigma Nu take great confidence in the fact that each chapter across the nation is consistently loyal to these values, maintaining honor, truth, and love in everyday acts. Sigma Nu strives to achieve a global approach in the understanding of its values. The men of the Beta Upsilon chapter aim to accomplish this goal by taking multiple chapter trips to various locations across the nation, simply to gain a better understanding of what it really means to be a Sigma Nu. In the past two years alone, these men have traveled to Cincinatti, Myrtle Beach, Destin, New Orleans, Nashville, Chicago, and St. Louis, simply to travel the nation and build even greater bonds of friendship and brotherhood. Sigma Nu prides itself on the ability to take men of promise and not only bring out the best in them but to give them the knowledge, values and friendships that will improve their lives in every aspect.
This tight brotherhood that Sigma Nu grows between members brings the brothers together to participate in events for the good of Rose-Hulman and the Terre Haute community. For any given event, all men of Sigma Nu are ready to lend a helping hand to enhance the surrounding community. It is for this reason that the men of Sigma Nu have taken part in-and held-many campus philanthropy events such as the annual Sigma Nu Volleybash, Polar Plunge, and Anchor Splash. Sigma Nu is also always willing to provide support of other fraternities and sororities across the area, holding intrafraternal relationships in very high regards. The values taught by the Sigma Nu fraternity advocate a community involvement that the brothers of the Beta Upsilon chapter take to heart and act on accordingly.
Since Sigma Nu's inception back in 1869, we have and will continue to take a strong stance against hazing. Sigma Nu was founded in opposition to hazing after James Frank Hopkins saw ATO hazing their pledges. Our Anti-Hazing initiatives are designed to bring awareness and resources to chapters to help combat the dangerous practice of hazing.


Sigma Nu Fraternity defines hazing as: "... any action taken or situation created, intentionally, whether on or off fraternity premises, to produce mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment or ridicule. Such activities may include but are not limited to the following: paddling in any form; creation of excessive fatigue; physical and psychological shocks; quests, treasure hunts, scavenger hunts, road trips, lineups or any other such activities carried on outside or inside the confines of the chapter house; wearing, publicly, apparel which is conspicuous and not normally in good taste; engaging in public stunts and buffoonery; morally degrading or humiliating games and activities; late work sessions which interfere with scholastic activities; and any other activities which are not consistent with fraternal law, ritual or policy or the regulations and policies of the educational institution. The willingness of any individual to participate in any hazing activity does not excuse any hazing violation." If you believe that you have been hazed, or if you know somebody who may have been hazed, please call our toll-free Anti-Hazing Hotline at 1-800-NOT-HAZE or send an e-mail to anti-hazing@sigmanu.org. You do not have to give your name.
