Sigma Kappa's chapter at the University of Delaware is comprised of 150 spirited, talented, smart and diverse women. The Sigma Kappa women are looking for active, intelligent, energetic and involved young women to join their chapter to continue their legacy and strive for excellence in the future.
Sigma Kappa is extremely dedicated to its three philanthropies: Alzheimer's research, gerontology, and the Maine Sea Coast mission. In the spring, we host a philanthropy event called Greek Love Duets, in which a girl and guy from each sorority and fraternity pair up to sing a duet together. Similarly, in the fall we celebrate our UltraViolet Week with Dove Bowl, a flag football tournament for fraternities, as well as Dance for a Chance in which fraternity and sorority members pair up to perform a dance together. In addition, Sigma Kappa volunteers at the Emmaus House and Rockland Nursing Home, both in the greater Newark and Wilmington areas.
Academically, Sigma Kappa continuously strives for excellence. We reward sisters for outstanding GPAs and encourage sisters to get involved in other organizations on campus such as honor fraternities and clubs. Many of our sisters are leaders in other organizations, including: Club Lacrosse, ASPIRE, Blue Hen Marketing Club, Student TV Network, and more!
Socially, the sisters of Sigma Kappa are always out and about! We have date parties, hayrides, a semi-formal and a formal at the end of spring semester. We also participate in numerous mixers with other sororities and fraternities. We look forward to Homecoming festivities and seeing alumnae sisters in the fall. Greek Week is one of our favorite spring activities!
Sigma Kappa has 25 leadership positions within the sorority and there are PLENTY of leadership opportunities within the Greek community, such as within Greek Council or Panhellenic Council.
Most important to Sigma Kappa women is their strong sisterhood bond. We are an extremely close-knit chapter with strong sisterhood ties. Sigma Kappas go everywhere together, from dinner to spring break!
Though each sister's face and every dream and goal is unique, the strength of our Sorority lies not in our differences but in our bond. From Maine to California, from 1874 to today, from sister to sister, together we are all the heart of Sigma Kappa Sorority.
Definitely consider "Going Greek!" It will be the best decision you make during your college career! The memories, friendships, and experiences last a lifetime.
