Letter from the Chapter
My name is Kendra Stevens, and it is my true privilege to say that I am the president of the Zeta Alpha chapter of Sigma Kappa here at Indiana University Southeast. I can speak for us all when I say that we are thrilled to have you at IUS. The Panhellenic community at IUS is truly something special, and something we are proud to be a part of. Greek life as a whole is supportive, uplifting, and an incredible enhancement to any college experience.
The Zeta Alpha chapter was founded at Indiana University Southeast in November of 1973, making us the first sorority on campus! Sigma Kappa was originally founded at Colby College in Waterville, Maine in 1874. Our five founders were the only women at their college, making it a necessity for them to band together in a sisterhood that has grown and flourished since. Their motivation for unifying together in Sigma Kappa is the same as ours—dedication to supporting social, intellectual, and spiritual development among one another. I can speak for everyone when I say that our experiences in our sisterhood have been nothing short of that.
Our members are a strong group of women committed to making positive changes to an already thriving chapter. With the support of our strong membership, we can build on the positive traditions of the past while continuing to live by our four main values: personal growth, friendship, service, and loyalty.
This sorority has given me nothing but rewarding experiences. None of this would be possible without a strong sisterhood among sisters, brought together from many different backgrounds, personalities, and majors.
I am so excited to be able to share a bit of this sisterhood with you in welcoming you to our campus. On behalf of us all, whether you are a potential member, alumnae, or parent, we want to thank you for taking the time to visit our website!
Sigma’s Love and Mine,
Zeta Alpha President 2018
