Sigma Nu opposes the practice of Hazing

People often associate hazing with fraternities. Sigma Nu is unique in the fact that we were founded based on honor, which stems from our founders rebelling against the common practice of hazing at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia. That principle still holds true today.

The Fraternal Staff works very hard to educate our undergraduate and alumni members on the importance of teaching our Candidates (new members) through activities free of hazing, primarily our LEAD Program (Leadership, Ethics, Achievement, Development). Sigma Nu has made available an anti-hazing hotline and e-mail address to anonymously report acts of hazing. This service has been made available not only to our undergraduate members, but to you as well. Should you believe that someone is being hazed, please call our toll-free Anti-Hazing Hotline at 1-800-NOT-HAZE or send an e-mail to You do not have to give your name.
