Lexington, Va. – Sigma Nu Fraternity is pleased to announce that Mu Chapter at the University of Georgia was honored with the Rock Chapter Award for the 2019-2021 biennium. The Fraternity salutes the men of Mu Chapter and the 23 other recipients of this distinguished award as exceptional chapters of Sigma Nu Fraternity whose overall operations have sustained a level of excellence for the past two or more academic years.
The Rock Chapter Award is meant to honor collegiate chapters that have achieved excellence in all areas of chapter operations. To be granted the award, a chapter should be expected to attain an ideal or a nearly perfect state across a broad range of areas of operations as measured by the Fraternity’s Pursuit of Excellence Program. Rock Chapters are expected to maintain a state of excellence for a consistent period of two-plus years.
The 2021 recognition marks Mu Chapter’s seventh consecutive Rock Chapter Award. The Chapter comprises 149 collegiate members with a collective 3.60 GPA. 100% of members are involved in other campus organizations, with 37% holding leadership positions in those organizations. Members raised $12,218 for charitable causes and averaged 16 hours of community service over the past year. General Fraternity recognitions for 2020-2021 included Excellence in All Chapter and LEAD Phase I; and Pursuit of Excellence Program awards for Values-Based Leadership, Personal Development & Membership Value, and Operational Excellence. Mu Chapter was also recognized by the North American Interfraternity Conference (trade association of 60+ fraternal organizations) with the Chapter Award of Distinction for 2021, designating them as a top chapter nationwide among all fraternities.
Sigma Nu wishes Mu Chapter success in its future endeavors and hopes it will continue to proudly represent the Fraternity’s mission, values, and principles through its honorable conduct.
