How Will You Remember This UNC Legend?How Will You Remember This UNC Legend? Dean Smith. It is a name that is synonymous with leadership, winning, hard work, tradition and dedication. And while Coach Smith was not a Deke (he was a Phi Gam from Kansas), he stood for many our own Sigma Nu mission: “to develop ethical leaders inspired by the principles of love, honor and truth; to foster the personal growth of each man’s mind, heart and character; and to perpetuate lifelong friendships and commitment.”

Dean Smith. It is a name that is synonymous with leadership, winning, hard work, tradition and dedication.

Maybe he was a special speaker at the house. Perhaps you met him personally through a fraternity brother. You and your brothers may have celebrated one of his national championships at the house. We said good-bye to this basketball legend earlier this month. How will you remember Coach Smith? Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
