Sigma Nu International Fraternity, Inc. was founded on January 1, 1869 at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) located in the heart of Lexington, Virginia. While attending VMI, our founders were concerned at the amount of hazing that took place and sought to create an organization that opposed this dangerous behavior. Inspired by the principles of Love, Truth, & Honor our founders created The Legion of Honor which would become who we are now: SIGMA NU INTERNATIONAL FRATERNITY. More than 100 years later, the beliefs and traditions of Sigma Nu live on each day, throughout college campuses across the U.S. and Canada. 

The Lambda Chi Chapter of Sigma Nu Fraternity was chartered on February 23, 1991 on the campus of California State University of San Bernardino. Our organization has long been recognized as the top fraternity and brotherhood on campus with over 50 active members and 300+ alumni members. We are Knights in Sigma Nu but we are proud to be Coyotes. GO YOTES!!!
