In Hoc Signo Vinces Capital Campaign Information

Letter From the President

Welcome to the website of the Alpha Nu Chapter of the Sigma Chi Fraternity at The University of Texas at Austin.

I am honored to serve as Consul (President) for the 2017 calendar year; the road ahead appears bright with even greater opportunity to grow both the chapter and as men. Building on the successes of the past seven years since we have returned to the UT greek community, Alpha Nu is excited to advance the causes that represent Sigma Chi through continual devotion to incredible philanthropic events, strong recruitment practices based on the criteria of the Jordan Standard, and the maintenance of a “top 5” GPA ranking among other university organizations.

Our plans are big here at the Texas chapter. The capital campaign to update our aging property is moving full steam ahead. Both the active brothers and alumni are working vigorously together to improve our organization which has given all of us so much, through the undergraduate years and beyond. Also, we plan to further expand and promote the premier fraternity charitable event in the nation, Texas Fight Night. Over the past three years, Alpha Nu has raised nearly $200,000 for cancer research from Fight Night alone. This next year promises to add even more.

We look forward to this coming year in exuberant anticipation of the great things to come. As a body of nearly 200 undergraduate brothers, we have come a long way from the handful of affiliates that re-pioneered Alpha Nu in 2009. Our goal is for the active chapter five years from now to continue to say that they have come even further, ever advancing the noble purposes of Sigma Chi.

In Hoc Signo Vinces,

Travis Monteleone
