Sigma Kappa provides valuable leadership development opportunities to its members. As an organization Sigma Kappa encourages our members to be involved in at least one extracurricular activity during their collegiate experience. Because of this focus on involvement outside of Sigma Kappa, our sisters are able to engage with the campus and community in ways that are important to them.
Every semester we have a Sisterhood Retreat! Retreats in the past have included: TreeUmph, a Camping trip, Busch Gardens, and even Disney!!
On top of retreats, smaller events are held throughout the semester that give sisters the opportunity to bond! This upcoming semester has a lot planned and will be a ton of fun!
Scholarship events include a scholarship brunch/banquet each semester, bi-weekly academic rewards at chapter, study sessions, and finals week incentives such as making survival kits or hosting stress relieving activities in chapter!
Since one of our values is service, we hold and participate in many philanthropic events throughout the semester that support not only our own causes, but also the philanthropies of other organizations in the community!
Every Fall Semester we host an Event called the UVMA's! In this event, other organizations will make a music video which will be shown at the event and they will also have a live performance. All proceeds raised at the UVMAs will be given to the Sigma Kappa Foundation which raises money for Alzheimer's research and gives scholarships and leadership opportunities to collegiate women.
One of Sigma Kappa's philanthropies is gerontology with a focus on Alzheimer's research. Last year, we raised 14,000 dollars and the goal for this year is to raise 15,000 dollars for Alzheimer's Research!
We have many social events planned throughout the year! Our Spring 2018 Formal was hosted by our lovely Social Chair, Lexi Bodden! Our Formal was on a Dinner Cruise and everyone had an amazing time!
Every semester we have an event with our lovely Alumna that gives us a chance to bond with former sisters!
