Sigma Nu Fraternity
Love, Honor, & Truth
Sigma Nu is dynamic, diverse, and united into a strong brotherhood based on the principle of honor. Sigma Nu is one of the strongest fraternities nationally with 261 chapters. Our national alumni are grateful for their years in the house and include the likes of Harrison Ford and Pat Riley. Sigma Nu at Cornell occupies a beautiful house overlooking both the gorge and Cayuga Lake. 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, baseball, wrestling, lacrosse, and track, Sigma Nus are also members of the Cornell Tradition, the Red Key Society, Adopt-a-School, and Big Brother-Big Sister of Ithaca.
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 55 is also kept closely knit by gathering together each night for dinner.
Running for Glory: Chad Levitt’s Run for the Record Books
Twenty years ago this fall, Big Red football fans were thrilled by the incredible rushing prowess of Sigma Nu’s Chad Levitt ’97. In his senior year, Chad had the opportunity to break the all-time Cornell and Ivy League career rushing record held by Ed Marinaro ’71. An elbow injury in the ninth game of the 1996 season left him just 59 yards shy of the record. Read his full story, as posted in the latest issue of Sigma News.
