Social Activities

Formals, date parties, social mixers with sororities, and other social events occur each year at Sigma Nu chapters. The purpose of attending a college or university is to increase an education and to ultimately graduate, but a college life without any social activity and involvement will leave a large gap in the overall college experience.

Sigma Nu seeks to provide social opportunities for its members to participate in a variety of events and to acquire skills for all types of social situations. The social calendar at Sigma Nu is varied and exciting! Sigma Nu does a great job setting up parties and events with sororities and other fraternities, as well as many brotherhood and alumni events.

In addition to the typical sorority exchanges, each spring semester Sigma Nu hosts its annual Snake Daze. The week has a long history with the chapter and campus.

Homecoming is one of the most exciting times of the year at the University of Tennessee. Every year fraternities welcome back brothers and fraternity row is alive with float building, cheer competition practice, lawn displays and the annual banner hanging. Each year Sigma Nu teams up with a sorority to participate in the campus wide homecoming festivities.

Community involvement is an important aspect of Sigma Nu. We are involved in various fundraising projects and community services that are organized each year to benefit people and charities in our community.

There are many smaller community services done by the Sigma Nu chapter at Tennessee, yet our point with these projects is to help build moral character through the realization of the needs of less fortunate people. The ideals of Sigma Nu are exemplified through human service projects, once again stressing our three cardinal principles: Love, Truth, and Honor.

Each spring semester Sigma Nu sponsors Fowl Fest, which is an afternoon of events that campus sororities participate and Snake Days, which is several days of band parties at Knoxville area venues. Sigma Nu has supported both the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Camp Koinonia over the past several years. In addition, the brothers participate in sorority philanthropies such as, Tri Delta Golf Classic, Delta Gamma Anchor Splash, Kappa Delta's War of the Wings, Kappa Kappa Gamma Kappalympics, and the Pi Phi softball tournament.
