Sigma Alpha Sorority

Club Overview:

Sigma Alpha is a professional agricultural sorority that promotes scholarship, leadership, service, and sisterhood among its members. The sorority was founded in 1978 at the Ohio State University by five women who wanted an alternative to the social Greek sorority system. Since that time, Sigma Alpha has become a national organization consisting of more than 60 chapters, comprised of undergraduate and alumnae members. Today, more than 4,000 members have been initiated into Sigma Alpha Sorority! We're growing steadily as others in agriculture learn about us.

The objective of the sorority shall be to promote its members in all facets of agriculture to strengthen the bonds of friendship among them. It is the purpose of its members to strive for achievement in scholarship, leadership, and service to further the development of excellence in women pursuing careers in agriculture.
