Cornell 2018 Homecoming

Cornell Homecoming 2018

Sigma Nu alumni returned to campus in September for Cornell’s Homecoming. Brothers and their families took part in tailgating festivities, Cornell football vs. Yale, and an awesome alumni reception at the house after the game. The chapter leadership and interested alumni gathered in the morning for the Gamma Theta Property Association’s annual meeting to update all on the status of our house and to outline plans for the future.

Cornell 2018 Reunion

Cornell Reunion 2018

Dozens of brothers came back to 230 Willard Way at Cornell Reunion in early June. We had 35 brothers and family members in the dining hall Friday night for a very special Reunion alumni dinner, and some brothers commented they had last eaten at Sigma Nu 40 years ago! The brothers spent time on the Cornell golf course, in Colllegetown, at the Reunion tent parties, and exploring their old home at Sigma Nu.

Our Fraternity

Sigma Nu embodies a brotherhood of men, defined by the fraternity’s core principles of Love, Honor, and Truth. The national organization was founded in 1869 at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia, and today comprises 166 chapters and colonies, spanning the United States and Canada. It has initiated more than 235,000 members, with famous brothers, to name a few, including Harrison Ford, Archie and Eli Manning, Al Michaels, Glenn Miller, Charles Schwab, Joe Buck, and Pat Riley. Sigma Nu National is considered in the elite when one discusses Greek life across the country.

Sigma Nu at Cornell occupies a beautiful house, overlooking both the gorge and Cayuga Lake, and our alumni are grateful for their years in the house. The brotherhood here believes in maintaining a strong mind, body, and soul, as evidenced by our outstanding performance in academics, athletics, and service. In addition to participants in varsity football, Sigma Nus today are also members of the Red Key Honor Society, ROTC, Cornell EMS, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Cornell Outdoor Education, the Cornell Hedge Fund, Pi Sigma Epsilon professional business fraternity, Cornell University Sustainable Design, Cornell Ski Team, eLab student start-up accelerator, ILR Ambassadors, and Orientation Leaders.

But what makes Sigma Nu unique is the tightness of the brotherhood. Once a candidate becomes an active brother, he is invited to live in the house until he graduates from Cornell. This creates an atmosphere where seniors, juniors, and sophomores live together, enjoying the good times and helping one another through the hard times. The house of 65 is also kept closely knit by gathering together each night for dinner, and our brotherhood grows to 90 plus members with each spring’s new brother class.

Cornell Sigma Nu alumni stay in close contact with the house, attending functions such as Reunion, Homecoming, and our annual New York City holiday dinner, and they provide career networking assistance and job opportunities to the undergraduates. Our chapter’s living alumni include leaders in their professions and communities, including corporate CEOs, physicians, attorneys, entrepreneurs, Wall Street financiers, NFL players, and Olympic gold medalists.
