Why did you become a Sigma Nu?
I became a Sigma Nu brother because of the men I met my first year at school. They were men I looked up to and I wanted to be a part of what made them who they were. Being a Sigma Nu brother at Gettysburg College was one of the major reasons I was able to succeed and graduate. The support structure was incredible.
