Alumni

Time at the University of Oregon is only a small part of our lives, but that does not make it any less important.  We keep in touch with our alumni and thought it important to share where Sigma Nu took them.  Recent graduates since our rechartering have pursued graduate schools in esteemed programs at USC and UC Berkeley, officer training in the US Marines and National Guard, and worked for companies such as Red Bull, Google, PepsiCo etc.  David Paulson, a founding father, is currently a tight end for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
