We recently asked our alumni members how their lives might be different if they hadn't joined Sigma Nu. Thomas Hallyburton (GA #763) said that when he was instantly welcomed into a special fraternal friendship that would last his entire life. In addition to that, he would not have met the love of his life if he hadn't joined.

Thomas said: "When I joined Sigma Nu in 1951, I was a homesick kid for my family in Tennessee. When the brothers returned in the fall, I found a great group of veterans who welcomed a young kid into a special fraternal friendship that has lasted all my life. One older brother, Bill Maier (GA #756), took me under his wing and became my best friend. On Thanksgiving, he invited me to visit his home in NY.
