Sigma Kappa provides valuable leadership development opportunities to its members. As an organization Sigma Kappa encourages our members to be involved in at least one extracurricular activity during their collegiate experience. Because of this focus on involvement outside of Sigma Kappa, our sisters are able to engage with the campus and community in ways that are important to them.
Sigma Kappa is incredibly active both on campus and within our community! Here are some of the events we participated in or hosted this last year:
The Walk to End Alzheimer’s:
Each year, the Beta Omega chapter creates a team and joins the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. While our whole chapter gathers together to walk, many of our members also volunteer their time setting up, tearing down, handing out fliers, and working the registration table! The Walk is a great way to support a cause that is near and dear to our hearts and grow even closer as a chapter.
Gerontology is one of our philanthropies, and we love representing this philanthropy by volunteering our time at different retirement communities around Omaha! This past year, we held bingo nights, made Valentine's Day cards and treats, and visited residents during the holidays!
Sigma Kapples have become a tradition on the UNO campus! Every fall, our sisters have a blast making tons of caramel and candy apples. We sell these apples on campus to raise money for the Sigma Kappa Foundation, which benefits Inherit the Earth, the Maine Sea Coast Mission, Gerontology, and the Alzheimer’s Association!
It's amazing to be a part of a school with such a tight-knit Greek Community! Therefore, we show our appreciation each semester by hosting a Panhellenic Social! We were all Lucky to be Panhellenic!
Sigma Kappa Ultra Violet BBQ:
This past Spring, Beta Omega hosted our annual Spring BBQ. By selling food, offering raffles, and hosting fun carnival games, we were able to raise funds to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. Remember, Alzheimer’s is no fun and games!
We love sharing our Sigma Kappa love with the people who raised us! Once a semester, we come together with our parents to celebrate them! This past Spring, we crafted together, and got to know more about the people who raised our amazing sisters!
This year, our theme was Wanderlust! A Place to get lost. We had so much fun with our sisters, it felt like we were somewhere else!
