Epsilon Eta Chapter of Sigma Kappa Earns Three Stars
The University of Findlay chapter of the Sigma Kappa sorority has achieved a remarkable milestone by receiving a three-star rating from their national sorority. This accomplishment is a testament to the dedication and hard work put in by each member of the sorority. After receiving a one-star rating the previous year, the chapter was determined to improve and make a positive impact on their campus community. The recognition of their efforts with a three-star rating has filled the members with immense pride and a renewed sense of motivation.
Karissa Mead, the sorority’s public relations chair, played a pivotal role in capturing and showcasing the sorority’s journey throughout the year. She posted photos on social media, documenting all the service projects, recruitment events, retreats, and philanthropic activities. One of the memorable service projects she mentioned was the visit to Birchaven Village, where they made necklaces and bracelets with the its retired residents. Reflecting on this experience, she said, “I absolutely loved meeting and chatting with the ones who attended. All of their personalities were so different and unique, and I’m glad we brightened their day because they certainly brightened ours!”
Sienna Garcia, the incoming president of the chapter, shared her pride in her sorority sisters’ achievement. She emphasized how the chapter constantly reflected on their Standards of Excellence (SOE) goals, which included academic achievement, philanthropic endeavors, and personal integrity. These SOE goals served as a guiding light as they strive to excel in all areas.
The chapter currently has 22 members and are looking forward to recruitment in the fall, hoping to welcome new members into their sisterhood. Both Mead and Garcia spoke passionately about the lifelong friendships and personal growth they experienced as part of Sigma Kappa. Garcia said, “Sigma Kappa serves as a safe space to do the things I love with the people I love. I have found myself doing things I would have never imagined due to the endless support from our advisors and my sisters.”
