While Sigma Nu always puts academics first, the fraternity was however founded as a social medium for men. The Beta Tau chapter hosts a variety of mixers, tailgates, parties, semi-formals, and brotherhood events each semester for undergraduate brothers and alumni alike. Sigma Nu maintains a very diverse and active social schedule and mixes with numerous NCSU sororities in a variety of locations. Some examples of previous social events include a themed bowling night with a sorority, a brotherhood campout, a semi-formal at Rum Runners in downtown Raleigh, and a trip to Carolina Cup in Camden, South Carolina.
In addition to undergraduate events, the Beta Tau chapter also hosts several events each academic year for our Alumni. The most notable event is our annual Alumni Oyster Roast, held each Spring, which consists of a friendly golf tournament and of course oysters. We also have lunch with our Alumni on the first Thursday of every month at Player's Retreat on Hillsborough St. The Lunches have become a big tradition for our Chapter.
