Sigma Kappa was founded in 1874 and found its way to American University in April 2016! Lambda Eta has brought together and empowered women who thrive individually and prosper together while holding close our values of loyalty, friendship, personal growth, and service.
The purpose of Sigma Kappa is to provide women with lifelong opportunities and support for personal development by bringing women together to positively impact their communities.
As sisters we push each other to become the best version of ourselves. We encourage each other by celebrating our differences and knowing that each one of us has something so special to offer: it's our uniqueness that makes our chapter beautiful. Sigma Kappa is a place where you can thrive academically, knowing your sisters are there encouraging you every step of the way. It's a place we can give back to the community and find that giving is so much better than receiving. Sigma Kappa's cabinet is a place where you find sisters that will make you wonder how you have gone so long without knowing them.
It's a place where you experience an overwhelming sense of loyalty and encouragement from everyone around you. We know that college is a crucial time in our lives, and we are so thankful that we get to experience them with our sisters side by side every step of the way.
Sigma Kappa has five philanthropies which conveniently from the acronym SIGMA. Two years ago on campus we launched our first Ultra Violet campaign and a fun event called Wings&Things in which unlimited wings and lawn games were provided for those who donate to the cause.
We also participate annually in the Walk to end Alzheimer's on the national mall. in addition to our incredible five philanthropies, we make an effort to come out and support our fellow Greeks in their philanthropic event as well.
Dues for Sigma Kappa are $522 for new members and $467 for initiated members in the fall and $612 for new members and $432 for initiated members (as of Fall 2019).
