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.
