Sigma Nu At OU Will Soon Have The Nicest House In The Country

Per a tipster who brought this to our attention, “Sigma Nu at the University of Oklahoma is building a new house that essentially looks like a 5-star hotel.”

Well said. It legitimately does look like a 5-star boutique hotel you would find in the historic district of some charming U.S. destination city. My initial reaction, other than the obvious HOLY SHIT!, is that I really love the L-shape design with the front entrance and patio areas being on the corner. Naturally, they are going with the classic red brick facade that is a staple of American fraternity houses. Very sharp.

From the chapter’s website:

The future Sigma Nu house will be in the same location at 1300 College Ave as it has been for the last 40 years. The architect, Steven Newby (ΔE 1373), is the grandson of the chapter’s founder Errett Newby (ΔE 1).

Unfortunately, this is the only rendering I’m able to find. I also can’t track down any specific details of the house. As noted in the above photo, the home is scheduled to be completed some time this year, so you’d have to think the construction is well under way at this point. I just can’t find any photos of this fraternal palace anywhere.

Here’s a photo of their lot I found on the chapter Facebook page, but that’s it:

The fraternity arms race is a fun one to watch. Houses just keep getting bigger and better as the never-ending battle of landing bluechip rushees never takes a day off. Let’s hope these guys are able to contain their excitement and hang onto their new house, unlike the poor bastards of Virginia Tech’s Sig Ep chapter who had to hand over the keys to their brand new $5 million house to independents.
