Letter from the Chapter
Sigma Kappa was founded in 1874 by five young women attending Colby College in Waterville, Maine. They were the first and ONLY women allowed there at that time! Our founders formed a unique support system, which is now Sigma Kappa, dedicated to bring women lifelong opportunities for social, intellectual and spiritual development that bring women together to positively impact our communities! Our chapter has thrived on the ETSU Campus, providing a supportive environment of friends that will forever change your life. We are extremely proud to be apart of our Panhellenic Association here on our beautiful mountain campus.
Our sisters live our values of friendship, service, personal growth and loyalty each day. We believe our bond to be so strong and supportive through the challenges we might face. Our members work extremely hard each year providing countless hours of community service, and demonstrating outstanding leadership and dedication to our various organizations on campus. The members of our chapter are the foundation to our success of all that we achieve. They are so full of creativity and talents that continue to inspire and push one another to be a better individual. The love we share as sisters in Sigma Kappa offers support and a positive atmosphere that will not fail you. The tears, laughter and joy we’ve experienced over the years makes up our strong sisterhood that has forever bonded us together.
Sigma Kappa creates opportunities for women to become part of a worldwide sisterhood of successful, caring women. We know growth and friendship are important to our women throughout their lives, so the Sigma Kappa experience doesn't end with graduation. Our bond continues to bring us together over the years, to share experiences, serve others, and have fun! With Sigma Kappa, college is just the beginning of a sisterhood that will bring you happiness for a lifetime.
The Gamma Lambda Chapter has so much to look forward to this upcoming semester and in the future! Our sisters look forward to meeting each of you, and we wish you the best of luck in your experiences at ETSU! In the words of our ETSU President, Dr. Noland, "Godspeed and Go BUCS!"
