Fraternity Problems

The fraternity of today, with its vast financial resources and property assets, is quite different from the fraternity of a few chapters housed in club rooms. Sigma Nu has had an unusual growth. Much has been said and done to develop and round out its ideals, but no progress whatsoever has been made in its business organization.

This must reach out into and include the finances of each and every chapter.

To The Fraternity: An Annual Report

The year has brought us both satisfying triumphs and conspicuous failures. We hope we’ve learned from both. We feel we’ve moved ahead on many important fronts, notably in undergraduate member understanding of the real meaning and purposes of fraternity in general and Sigma Nu in particular. That task has no end.

But who is to say whether or not we are really making substantial progress towards our goal . . . helping Family, Church, and State produce a better man by helping our members achieve a better education? It’s like Dick Vaughan said . . . “The Fraternity will be as good as you are.”
