We all are university students, our education is the reason why we are here in the first place. To better ourselves in order to gain a more prosperous future. That is where Sigma Alpha Zeta comes in, we work together to help all sisters succeed academically.
With 15 hours minimum study hours plus group study hours, we make sure no one falls behind. A great plus is when a sister has taken the same classes that you need to take, and are always able to help. On several occurrences sisters take the same classes so they can become each others study buddies for any homework or upcoming exams.
Sigma Alpha Zeta also has a Academic Advisor, Thelma Chavez. Thelma has been our Academic Advisor for over ten years and she continues to do such a great job in helping direct the girls on their academics, and what classes to take. When it comes to our education we take it seriously 110% of the time, sisters of Sigma Alpha Zeta Sorority Incorporated always strive to be empowered leaders.
Sisterhood is a rich tradition that defines a sorority. It’s the unbreakable bond shared by the members of the organization that set us apart from from just a regular club. The bond of sisters is something of strength and whether you were blessed to have blood sisters or not, after joining Sigma Alpha Zeta this sisterhood within the sorority will be one to cherish.
Our members become life long friends, even best friends. They become each other’s bridesmaids, roommates, godmother’s for kids, simply someone to confine in. Through your college years, the bond of sisterhood is only strength as you add more sisters. Every person has a unique story to offer, a different point of view and we cherish and encourage growth as individual.
Our pursuit of higher education is the bases of our bond. Not only will you have a safety net here at San Diego State University, but joining Sigma Alpha Zeta gives you sisterhood that stretches from Northern California to Southern California. A bond that last a lifetime, one that can’t be explain from the outside, only understood from the inside is what Sigma Alpha Zeta can offer you.
Sigma Alpha Zeta is multicultural sorority that prides itself on our many accomplishments as a group, as well as individually, but especially on giving back to the communities that have supported us, and have allowed us to continue expanding our sisterhood.
Every semester our chapter gathers together for various types of community service events that are fun and helpful to our society. One community service event that we participate in every spring is the Greek Week Service day. Each year the type of service changes, but it always sheds a positive light on the Greek community. This past spring, members of all 4 Greek Councils (USFC, IFC, Panhellenic, NPHC) came together to put a carnival together for children at a small school down the street from campus. There were games, face painting, coloring, prizes, and lots of happy children.
Other community service events we participate in include feeding the homeless, cleaning up local beaches, helping at breast cancer walks, or helping out at the Chicano Park Festival. There is no limit to the types of service we can participate in, and each year we decide to expand our horizons more and more and look for newer and more positive activities to immerse ourselves in.
