Parent FAQ

Q: "Will my daughter be more involved on campus through Sigma Kappa?"

A: Absolutely! Sigma Kappa is a great way for girls to become more active on campus.  We set up tables on around the DP Culp or Quad to involve the whole Campus in our philanthropies which gives them opportunities to meet new people and help with a great cause. Many of our sisters are also involved with the campuses   ministries, sports, and student government.

Q: "Does Sigma Kappa provide leadership opportunities?"

A: Of course! Sigma kappa offers many leadership opportunities through our sorority and the Panhellenic community. We do food drives, Visit animal shelters, and Highway cleanup. Through Sigma Kappa, plenty of opportunities arise on meeting new people and building relationships.

Q: "Will joining Sigma Kappa take away from my daughter's college education?"

A: No! Nationwide, Greek women have a higher GPA than non Greek women. Many sisters in our own chapter also testify that joining a sorority has helped them learn important skills like time management, teamwork, and consistency - all skills necessary for a successful college career. 

Q: "What kind of financial commitment would joining Sigma Kappa require?"

A: Chapter dues differ by school, but here at ETSU, a Sigma Kappa sister pays around $500 the first 2 semesters, and then around $300 every subsequent semester. 

Q: "What can a Greek organization offer my daughter that other campus organizations cannot?"

A: Going Greek offers young women endless opportunities. Not only does joining a sorority give young women a 'family' and a support system while away at college, but it teaches them invaluable life skills - networking, time management, leadership, and many more!

Q:"Can parents be involved in Sigma Kappa?"

A: Absolutely! Newsletters get sent out to parents monthly, and we always plan events for parents to attend a few times each semester. Our Vice President of Alumnae Relations does a fantastic job at filling the gap between active members, alumnae, and parents.
