For more than 50 years the Zeta Psi Chapter of Sigma Nu at Lamar University has been committed to the principles of Love, Honor and Truth, and the development of the minds and characters of the brothers that join our chapter.

 

The brothers of the Zeta Psi chapter have set the standard in academics for many years, and the past few years have been some of the best. The brothers in the active chapter have averaged almost a 3.0 GPA.

Additionally, the chapter is committed to the personal development of our brotherhood through use of the LEAD program developed by the Sigma Nu national headquarters. LEAD stands for "Leadership, Ethics, Achievement and Development", and its primary goal is the development of ethical leaders

Sigma Nu is founded against Hazing!

Sigma Nu was actually founded as a protest movement to hazing. Our three founders were unwilling to accept any amount of hazing then being allowed at VMI. They were they willing to suffer and they were doggedly adamant about eliminating it. In October 1868, with clasped hands on the Bible, they gave their solemn pledge to form a brotherhood of a new society they called the Legion of Honor. We expect all members and new members to abide by our founders vision of a brotherhood opposed to hazing.

Honor

Our founders at Virginia Military Institute lived by a code of honor. The Honor system at VMI required each cadet to conform to the duty imposed by his conscience that each act be governed by a high sense of Honor. We are the first fraternity to be founded upon this honor principle. When lived out in the bonds of fraternal brotherhood, the honor principle brings a level of integrity and excellence that is uncommon in a world of relative truth.


Brotherhood

Sigma Nu is, first and above all, a brotherhood. The friendships and memories we form here will last a lifetime. Fraternity, for us, is all about supporting one another, and working together to build a far richer college experience than any would have otherwise. Furthermore, Sigma Nu is not just four years, it’s for life.


Ethical Leadership

Sigma Nu is committed to developing ethical leadership. In doing so, our strategy is twofold. Sigma Nu provides leadership opportunities through various positions and committee involvement in addition to increased exposure to other campus leadership opportunities. Sigma Nu also provides leadership education Through the LEAD (Leadership Ethics Achievement Development) Program. The LEAD Program is a four-year leadership development curriculum that starts from the first day you become a member and does not end until you graduate. Each of the four phases correspond with your year in school (Freshman- Phase I, Sophomore- Phase II, etc…) and teaches you skills applicable to your college experience and helps prepare you for life after college.
