• Zeta Lambda at the University of Tulsa

    Sigma Nu has a long and storied history on the campus of the University of Tulsa.  Founded in 1951, the chapter has initi­ated 645 men into the frater­nity’s ranks.  However, in late 2004 facing a failed rush and issues with the University, Sigma Nu National made the hard decision to temporarily suspend chapter operations.  Nationals suggested a four to five year timeline before reactivating the chapter to allow Zeta Lambda the opportunity at having a fresh and entirely new student base.  Alumni and representatives from Nationals have begun the process to reactivate the chapter and move toward initiating ZΛ 646.



    Nationals has issued a letter of intent with the University to reactivate Zeta Lambda chapter.  To reinforce National’s efforts and to provide a framework for alumni support, a group of alumni have begun the process of establishing the Zeta Lambda Alumni Chapter.  You will be hearing a great deal about both of these developments in the near future.
