"Your association with Sigma Nu Fraternity does not end with college. Ours is a Fraternity for life. In fact, full appreciation for Sigma Nu does not come instantly; often it takes years to gain a complete understanding and appreciation. Rest assured that alumni experience and involvement in our Fraternity - on both the local and General Fraternity level - are essential ingredients in the successful operation of our international organization."
This excerpt from The Way of Honor describes not only the importance of staying connected and involved in the Fraternity, but the fraternal responsibility of all alumni to do so. While there are many paths one may choose to stay engaged, the alumni chapter is a perfect starting point for the brothers of Nu Chapter. It is the alumni chapter that most directly allows alumni to stay connected to their brothers, and the chapter; most readily extends, and expands, the Sigma Nu experience after college; and serves as an active demonstration of one's lifetime membership and commitment to Sigma Nu.
While in school, a brother is immersed in Sigma Nu. Every day, the Fraternity is there - it permeates every aspect of his daily life. What happens when his tenure as a student is complete?
Countless alumni have experienced the void created by their departure from the collegiate chapter. The excitement and stresses of entering the "real world" command all available attention and fill the space once occupied by Sigma Nu. As The Way of Honor reminds us, "Your association with Sigma Nu Fraternity does not end with college. Ours is a Fraternity for life."
The Alumni Chapter of our Fraternity is an example of the extraordinary bonds and connections that exist in our brotherhood. It facilitates meaningful interactions among alumni, perpetuates friendships, and provides for the ongoing experience of brotherhood in Sigma Nu.
