Letter from the President

Sigma Nu house in winter

I hope this message finds you all in great health and high spirits. It is with great pleasure that I write to you to reflect on the past year and share some exciting updates.

Since this time last year, our fraternity has achieved significant milestones. Most notably, we have completed a highly productive rush season, welcoming 29 exceptional new members into our Sigma Nu Brotherhood. The addition of these talented individuals has brought new energy and ideas to our chapter, and we look forward to witnessing their contributions in the years to come.

Our presence on Grounds at the University of Virginia has been more prominent than ever, as we have actively engaged in various community service and philanthropy events. We are committed to positively impacting our community and have supported organizations such as the Sexual Assault Resource Agency of Charlottesville, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and the Yellow Door Foundation. These initiatives have allowed us to give back and reinforce our commitment to creating a better world.

Our desire to connect with our esteemed alumni remains unwavering. We are continuously seeking opportunities to expand our speaker series, inviting alumni to share their experiences and wisdom from their time at UVA and beyond in their careers. Your insights and mentorship are invaluable to us, and we appreciate any guidance you can provide to the brotherhood.

I must also commend the hard work and dedication of our social chairs and committee for their exceptional efforts in planning and executing a memorable Parent’s Formal and Cookout Weekend. The feedback from our guests and family members has been overwhelmingly positive, and it would not have been possible without their commitment and creativity.

Additionally, I would like to take a moment to express our gratitude to the house corporation (Hopkins Society) officers: Terry Birkel (ʼ66), James Bogart (ʼ04), and Steve Moriarity (ʼ74).They have gone above and beyond in their roles and their tireless efforts have ensured that our house is in excellent condition, providing our brothers with a comfortable and welcoming environment.

Serving as Commander over the past year has been an incredible honor, and I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to each of you who have supported and worked alongside me in this role. Your unwavering commitment to Sigma Nu has been a source of inspiration and a driving force behind our accomplishments.

In closing, the Beta Chapter of Sigma Nu at the University of Virginia is stronger and more vibrant than ever, and we are committed to building on our successes. We look forward to rekindling connections with our alumni and forging new ones as we continue to thrive. Thank you for your enduring support, and please do not hesitate to reach out if you ever find yourself in Charlottesville. We would love to have you visit and share in the spirit of Sigma Nu.
