Build a Legacy

Build Sigma Nu


Sigma Nu's past is a proud and colorful one. Founded by three cadets at the Virginia Military Institute in a period of civil strife known as the Reconstruction, Sigma Nu represented a radical departure from the times. The system of physical abuse and hazing of underclassmen at VMI led to James Frank Hopkins, Greenfield Quarles, and James McIlvaine Riley to form the "Legion of Honor" which soon became Sigma Nu Fraternity. So, amidst a backdrop of turmoil, North America's first "Honor" fraternity was established. Sigma Nu currently has 166 active chapters and colonies on college campuses throughout the United States, and has initiated over 235,000 members since its founding.

The Kappa Chapter of Sigma Nu Fraternity at the University of North Georgia was originally chartered in 1881 and has since initiated over 1,000 brothers. We are excited to announce that Sigma Nu Fraternity will return to UNG Spring 2018.



To develop ethical leaders inspired by Love, Honor, and Truth.

To foster the personal growth of each man's mind, heart, and character.

To perpetuate lifelong friendships and commitment to the Fraternity.
