Sigma Kappa

Chapter History

Chapter History

The Alpha Delta chapter of Sigma Kappa has been at the University of Tennessee since 1921, making us 100 years old! Our chapter is full of smart, free spirited and spunky young ladies. Our values are personal growth, friendship, loyalty, and service; all of which shine through in each of our members. Our chapter was awarded 2020 Panhellenic Chapter of the Year thanks to our amazing members and executive council. On top of that, we won the ACE Cup through All Campus Events and won many awards through our national headquarters. 

 

One of the things that makes Sigma Kappa so special is the diversity among our chapter. We have members from almost all 50 states, and several foreign countries. This creates a very welcoming atmosphere for all potential new members. We are also very grateful to have our own Sigma Kastle. Our chapter house located in sorority village houses 41 girls every year. Through this extremely difficult year, we have had to stick together and support each other through the ups and downs. 

 

Philanthropy is something that our women are extremely passionate about. Our chapter is unique in that we support five main philanthropic and community service based organizations. Fun fact, our 5 philanthropies spell out S.I.G.M.A. They include: Sigma Kappa Foundation, Inherit the Earth, Gerontology, Maine Seacoast Mission, and Alzheimer’s Disease research. We partner with a multitude of local and national organizations in order to raise money, care for our environment, put smiles on the faces of those in adult care facilities, send resources to isolated island communities, and stand with those fighting to find an end to Alzheimer's disease
