Sigma Nu

“We are the Theta Kappa Chapter of Sigma Nu Fraternity located at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia. Our Chapter is Chapter #171, was founded on November 17, 1967, colonized on May 6, 1968, and we were formally chartered on May 10, 1970.”

The Sigma Nu Fraternity was founded in 1869 at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington. 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. Sigma Nu Fraternity began in October 1868 as the Legion of Honor, its existence was kept secret until the founders publicly announced their new society on the first day of January 1869, the accepted birthdate of Sigma Nu.
