Nu Sigma Nu is an international professional fraternity for medicine. The Pi chapter of the Nu Sigma Nu was a student medical fraternity located at the Washington University School of Medicine. The chapter was a first a local medical fraternity of the Missouri Medical College begun in 1898. In 1900, Alpha Kappa Phi became the Pi chapter of a national fraternity, Nu Sigma Nu. The Washington university chapter had an enthusiatic alumni club in the early years besides its active or student chapter. In its heyday, it maintained a large residential chapter house on Forest Park Boulevard. Nu Sigma Nu's last members graduated with class of 1972 and met at Olin Residence Hall. When the chapter residence was sold, Cecil H. Charles, an active alumnus established a fund which paid expenses for many years.
