Your list of hopes for your son probably didn't include being a "frat guy". Well it isn't on the top of our list either. Being a "frat guy" is easy —but being a "fraternity man" is the road less traveled.
We realize that 18 to 22 year old males usually don't need much guidance how to have fun —it comes naturally. But we do realize that leadership, morals, dealing with people, defining achievement all take a little more planning, thought, and guidance.

Sigma Nu's LEAD Program, which stands for Leadership, Ethics, Achievement, Development, provides the tools for our members to develop the same leadership skills that most corporations offer to their top executives.
