Welcome to the online home of Lambda Chapter of Sigma Nu Fraternity. We hope these pages will serve as a useful resource for actives, alumni and the Washington and Lee community alike.
Sigma Nu has been a tradition at Washington & Lee University since 1882 and thrives upon its ideals of Love, Truth, and Honor. At W&L Sigma Nu is active on campus and participates in intramurals, university events, and engages in service in the Rockbridge community.
Sigma Nu Fraternity officially began on January 1, 1869 when three honorable cadets at Virginia Military Institute joined together in the spirit of brotherhood to oppose the hazing they witnessed at VMI. With some 250 chapters between the United States and Canada, men of honor today are continuously being shaped into the leaders of tomorrow. The brotherhood still strives to uphold the same ideals of love, truth, and honor set forth by our founders
