Letter to Parents
You may be wondering, "What is all this sorority stuff about?" or even be concerned by the images of Greek life that you see in the media - partying, hazing, and generally irresponsible behavior. We want to assure you that the reality of membership in Sigma Alpha Zeta is different.
Membership in a sorority is not about parties. Sororities were formed, and exist to this day, to provide a supportive atmosphere where college women can work on joint projects that benefit the campus and community, have opportunities for leadership and personal growth, and enjoy the friendship of other members in the Greek community. Membership is for a lifetime, not just college, and Sigma Alpha Zeta women can look forward to having connections with their sorority sisters throughout their lifetime.
Sigma Alpha Zeta chapters focus on academic excellence for its members, and each chapter has a scholarship chairman to monitor chapter progress. In fact, various of our chapters have been awarded for academic achievements throughout the years.
Sigma Alpha Zeta events are alcohol-free, and usually consist of getting together for evenings of dinner, movies, games nights, miniature golf, bowling, or attending university sponsored events.
Sigma Alpha Zeta has special programming for its chapter members which include programs such as workshops on alcohol awareness, time management, dinner etiquette, financial planning, and portfolio organization.
Sigma Alpha Zeta chapters have a special emphasis on philanthropy, especially those projects which benefit women and children. Nationally, Sigma Alpha Zeta is an advocate for the prevention of Domestic Violence. Each chapter is involved with local community groups to help aid in this fight.
If you have further questions or concerns, please contact one of our chapter's members. We want you to feel comfortable and know exactly what Sigma Alpha Zeta is all about and what we have to offer your daughter!
