Sigma Nu International was founded in 1869 at Virginia Military Institute by three Civil War Veterans. They founded Sigma Nu on the principles of Love, Truth, and Honor. Fall quarter of 1970, the Theta Pi chapter at the University of West Georgia was founded. Sigma Nu was the first fraternity at West Georgia to accept a bid from a national social fraternity. The Sigma Nu's at the University of West Georgia have always held these founding principles as the key to a true brotherhood. It is our belief that an adherence to these values will produce well rounded men with the confidence to be leaders and enjoy success throughout their lives.
Our fraternity strives for quality rather than quantity. Despite this belief we have been one of the two largest chapters for the last decade. Our strong commitment to education is reflected in our chapters GPA, which can be attributed to "study halls" that all brothers and candidates take part. Sigma Nu's are also active in all sports. When it comes to athletics, we don't just participate, we play to win. Our long tradition of dominance continues today Sigma Nu's social calendar is filled with events from the beginning of the semester to the end. We have three to four socials a semester, a fall and spring formal, and numerous parties and Alumni events throughout the year. Not everyone can be a Sigma Nu. Honor is our cornerstone and to those fortunate to be chosen will know its meaning.
