Sigma Nu Fraternity, Inc. is an international fraternity.  Our origins find us back at Virginia Military Institute in the late 1800's, founded by three cadets at the Virginia Military Institute in a period of civil strife known as the Reconstruction.  Sigma Nu represented a radical departure from the times; the system of physical abuse and hazing of underclassmen at VMI led James Frank Hopkins, Greenfield Quarles, and James McIlvaine Riley to form the “Legion of Honor” which soon became Sigma Nu Fraternity.  Thus during a backdrop of turmoil, North America’s first “Honor” fraternity was established, and in 1992, Sigma Nu Fraternity found its way to UNC Asheville as the Mu Eta chapter to further represent and recruit men who could bond together through the strength of Love, Honor, and Truth.
