Sigma Nu wins Big Orange Give Second Year In A Row
Each November, the UT Foundation conducts Big Orange Give. UT raised $2.555 million in one day. As part of the Big Orange Give 2019, UT conducts The Greek Challenge. The Greek Challenge is sponsored by Ron and Don Frieson (Kappa Alpha Psi). All Greek organizations compete against each other in two categories: Large Chapter (100 members or members) and Small Chapter (less then 100 members). There were two competitions this year and $2,500 was awarded to the winner in each – the chapter with the most donors and the chapter who raised money. Sigma Nu won the competition for the second year in a row with 308 donations and raised $9,087. By winning both categories the Chapter won an additional $5,000.
