POSTED: 2012-02-21 :: LAST UPDATED: 2012-02-21, 15:00 ET

National Ritual Celebration Week will be observed March 4 10, 2012. During this week, fraternity and sorority chapters, campus communities and inter/national organizations across North America will raise awareness of the importance of ritual by encouraging members to reflect personally on their organization's ritual while embracing the ritual of other interfraternal organizations.

To participate in this effort, "Sigma Nu Brothers are asked to reflect on why Sigma Nu was founded and why we have The Ritual. Chapters are encouraged to have discussions about what it means to "live the ritual" and what Sigma Nu's ritual means to individual chapter members," said Scott Smith, Director of Leadership Development for Sigma Nu Fraternity, Inc.

National Ritual Celebration Week was created and is sponsored by Phi Mu Fraternity. To learn more about National Ritual Celebration Week, visit
