While college only lasts four years, these friendships are forever.
Welcome! Sigma Kappa Beta Upsilon believes that our primary purpose is to create an environment for our members in which lasting friendships and our values of sisterhood emanate all aspects of our organization. We encourage an atmosphere which will foster high ideals of friendship among college women, promote their educational and cultural interests.
The women that make up our chapter call both Athens and 22 North College "home" during our years here, and long after leaving the bricks of this beautiful town.
Why Sigma Kappa?
"Becoming a part of Sigma Kappa has been the best thing that has happened to me, without exaggeration. I have made lifetime friends with women here that I cannot see my life without. These women are always there to laugh with me until I cry, or cry with me until I laugh. Overall, what makes me love being a Sigma Kappa most is the ability each woman has to embrace theirs and others uniqueness for what it is." -Abbey Kay
"I joined Sigma Kappa because when I went through recruitment I didn't feel like I was in an interview or had to try. When I'm with my friends I felt like I could be myself and since college I think I've only changed for the better because of the women I've met in Sigma Kappa." -Juliette Wechlser
"Sigma Kappa made me feel like I belonged in the way that it didn't matter if I was the same as everyone else, I felt accepted for who I am as an individual. Everyone is filled with so much love for each other and you can tell even going through recruitment that the women care for each other in an overpowering way. There are so many walks of lives in this sorority, making it easy to express all parts of yourself. Oh, and not to mention the constant laughter that fills the house." -Martine McLaughlin
"I joined Sigma Kappa because it was the house that had a relaxed inviting vibe. And when talking to the women I didn't feel pressured to be perfect or anything but myself." -Maddi Cruse
Though many of us associate the benefits of sorority membership with the college years, Sigma Kappa is a lifelong influence on its members. Besides offering support, encouragement, and an atmosphere that promotes success and well-being, Sigma Kappa creates opportunities for women to become part of a worldwide sisterhood of successful, caring women.
