Chapter Leadership Update

Spring 2024
Brothers are ready for the "Sigma Saloon" party in March.
Brothers enjoyed our annual NYC holiday party. Robert Cohen ’93, Mike Kelly ’91, Andy Hite ’93, and Marc Bruno ’93

We’ve started planning for Cornell Reunion in June and welcome back our ‘4 and ‘9 class year alumni, as well as their families and friends of Sigma Nu. We will be hosting an alumni reception and open house on Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8 from 3 to 6 PM both days. Please be sure to stop by 230 Willard Way and see what’s new at our chapter house, rekindle old relationships as well as make some new ones.

We have a new class of brothers from the spring rush period and the chapter is taking them through a series of orientation and classes including LEAD, Sigma Nu’s tool to assist our membership in both gaining the knowledge and developing the skills and abilities needed to be an effective and ethical leader for life.

Our chapter house is looking great! Work was completed in the summer of 2023 to install new flooring in the Great Hall, library, and staircase landings, plus to finish the reflooring of all bedrooms, which we started a few years ago. Check out the photo tour of our house. Many thanks to all alumni who contributed!

We want to ensure our undergraduate brothers have the best experience possible, as we all had. We will have an operating-budget gap until we have a larger total brotherhood numbering close to 50. Our Building a Bridge effort seeks to raise $100,000 during the 2023–2024 school year to offset that gap. This is our single greatest financial need, and we have raised $35,550 against our goal through May 20, 2024. You can join other alumni today by paying your dues and, if possible, by making an additional Building a Bridge contribution to the Gamma Theta Property Association or by making a donation to our Fall Creek Leadership Foundation. Thank you to all alumni for your continued support of our chapter!

Where Are They Now? The Reunion Year ’4 and ’9 Classes of Sigma Nu

Brothers from near and far will be heading back to campus from June 6th to the 9th for Cornell Reunion. We look forward to hosting all our alumni, family and friends at our open houses on Friday and Saturday from 3 to 6 PM. Please make stopping by Sigma Nu a part of your Reunion plans! You can check our photo gallery from Reunion in 2023 to see who showed up. In the meantime, we’ve reached out to our Reunion year alumni to find out what they’ve been up to recently.
