Why Sigma Nu?

Join a nationally-recognized, anti-hazing fraternity dedicated to bettering ourselves, each other, and our community. We believe that a diverse group of men with similar values and a shared purpose develops ethical leaders who are prepared for college and post-graduate life.


We are students first and take our academics seriously - it’s why we are consistently recognized as one of the top GPAs at UC Davis and received the 2020 Sigma Nu Regent's Award for Academic Excellence among 200 Sigma Nu chapters. We also offer multiple scholarships for brothers who prove their embody our ideals every day.

As one of the largest fraternities at UC Davis, you will always have someone to lean on. We are present in each other’s lives whether in times of joy or sorrow, celebration or strife. We believe in being our brother's keeper and speaking to our brothers with manly candor.


We develop ethical leaders with the skills to be successful in college and in their professional life. Through Sigma Nu, you can learn how to be an effective leader that will serve you throughout your life and even help you land your first job after college through development workshops, inspirational talks and our mentorship program.

We strive to make a positive impact and give back to our community through yearly community service and philanthropy events - many brothers also volunteer at campus and community organizations; so much that we were awarded the 2020 Community Service Contribution Award among all Sigma Nu chapters.

Dominic Faria

“I became a Sigma Nu because it was clearly different from any other fraternity I know. Our members hold ourselves to the highest standard of excellence. We adamantly reject hazing, refuse to be defined by the traditional negative fraternity stereotype, and support each member through the entirety of his college experience and beyond. It has undoubtedly made me a better student, friend, leader, and human being.”


Nicky Aikawa

“I came to Davis with zero intention of joining a fraternity. In a way I ended up rushing by accident, but didn’t realize it would be the best decision of my college career. Sigma Nu allowed me to develop as a person and leader. I credit my friendships beyond college and much of my success in my career from what I learned in Sigma Nu.”




“It took me some time to find my way to Sigma Nu but once I did I found my home here at Davis. The support network this place gave me shaped my college experience and has allowed me to grow, make lifetime friendships and be prepared for my job after college with the skills I learned.”
