NSU submitted a petition to Sigma Xi beginning two years ago and through an extensive review process has been granted the honor of having a Sigma Xi chapter installed. At this installation, we will also be inducting new members. Having the NSU chapter of Sigma Xi puts us among the ranks of more than 500 chapters in North America and around the world. Membership in this International organization has exceeded 100,000 members. NSU is becoming one of these noted chapter members.
