The Chapter lost its charter in the spring of 2014 as a result of a hazing incident. After some 3 and ½ years, in the fall of 2017 Sigma Nu National along with the Office of Student Affairs and Fraternal Life at UVA spearheaded a re-chartering effort. As the oldest active Sigma Nu chapter with a long, outstanding history, we are considered a vital chapter by both Sigma Nu National and the UVA administration. In October 2018, we had the official chartering ceremony, inducting some 50 brothers. This spring the Chapter had a very successful rush and added 22 more pledges, bringing brotherhood to 62, slightly above the UVA average size.
