sigma nuhelping hand initiative



Service is important to Sigma Nu. At McKendree University all members are required to obtain at minimum 15 hours of community service each semester because we believe it is important to make a difference in our community. We do some of our hours together by going to the Highland Home in Highland, IL. We play bingo, miniature bowling, and just talk to the residents there and all the brothers really enjoy it.

Sigma Nu Fraternity is affiliated with:

character counts




CHARACTER COUNTS! It is the nation’s most widely adopted approach to character education. Its broad framework for educators and youth service providers is built around nonpartisan, nonsectarian values called the Six Pillars of Character – trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.

habitat for humanity




Habitat for Humanity As a worldwide, nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry, Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to the elimination of homelessness and poverty housing from the world. Habitat was founded on the belief that all people deserve a decent and affordable place to live in dignity and safety.

Sigma Nu chapters and members have the opportunity to be involved with their local Habitat for Humanity affiliates as they pursue the elimination of poverty housing.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital St. Jude is one of the world’s premier centers for research and treatment of catastrophic diseases in children, primarily pediatric cancers. It was built upon the belief that “no child should die in the dawn of life” and that conviction still holds true today in the hearts of St. Jude employees. The institution has a clear mission, unstoppable desire and an unquenchable passion to protect and nurture the health of children everywhere.

Sigma Nu is a collegiate partner of St. Jude's in the fight against catastrophic childhood disease. Members will have a wide variety of opportunities to help out by getting involved with both local and national programs. More specifically, St. Jude’s has established a program specifically for Sigma Nu chapters: Sigma Nusball – a flag football tournament centered around a proven fundraising model established by St. Jude Hospital.
