As you think about Sigma Nu at Penn State and the value in being a part of this organization, what are your favorite things? What motivates you to give to your brotherhood? We have come up with our own list of reasons to stay connected, support the chapter and help us return to our glory days. We want your feedback on this Top 10. If you have other favorites to add to the list, e-mail us at feedback@affinityconnection.com. We want to hear from you!

#1 - Pride in 340 N. Burrowes Rd.: It is a house that has seen its ups and downs … both physically and in the lives of those Delta Delta brothers who came of age at this address. There have been renovations through the years to keep it a safe, comfortable and competitive living space for our active brothers.

#2- The Legion of Honor: Following in the mission of our founders that each of brother “conform to the duty imposed by his conscience that each act be governed by a high sense of honor,” we take pride in knowing that we hold our brotherhood to a higher standard.

#3 – The Ritual: Our Ritual is the oldest and most distinguished document defining our fraternity and our Delta Delta Chapter. It binds us together in a way that nothing else does. It is at the heart of our chapter and at the heart of our brotherhood. Do what you have to do to remind yourself of the meaning behind our Ritual.

#4 – Our Creed: “To believe in the life of love. To walk in the way of honor. To serve in the light of truth. This is the life, the way, and the light of Sigma Nu.” This is the creed of our fraternity. How are you living the creed today?

#5 – Sigma Nu Sweethearts/White Rose Queens:  They were some of our best friends during college, and a few of them became the wives of Sigma Nu brothers. Who do you remember?

#6 - Guidance of Alumni: The young men initiated into Sigma Nu at Penn State are often under 20 years of age. During our years as undergraduates, there was reassurance in knowing that alumni were looking out for our best interest. Now, as alumni, we understand that we cannot ask a lifetime of experience from young men who are just learning what leadership means. We have to show them. That is how we learned.

#7 - Penn State Football Weekends: As news of a possible new Paterno statue makes headlines, we are reminded of the football weekends that brought together Penn State Sigma Nu alumni and actives together on the house lawn for meals, stories, games, networking and good times not replicated in any other setting.

#8 - Homecoming: These were some of the best times. We encourage you to return to what is often a full agenda of events including food, the big game (of course) and time to catch up with brothers and their families.

#9 – Decade and Pledge Class Reunions: 5, 10, 15, 25, 50, 60 … the years pass by so quickly. Some of the best memories have been made as smaller groups come back to Penn State to celebrate the anniversary of a pledge class or the camaraderie of a decade of Delta Delta brothers.

#10 - Getting the News: If you had a way to read about what members of your pledge class are doing, wouldn’t you stop and take notice? Our website is one way to stay connected. Update your profile. Contact a brother. Make your opinion known about the state of the chapter. It’s time to get involved!
