OUR FOUNDATION

Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority, Incorporated is a historically South Asian based sorority. The name Sigma Sigma Rho was chosen for this organization because it substantially upholds our motives and goals, which are expressed in Sisterhood, Society, and Remembrance. Sigma Sigma Rho embodies unity amongst women of South Asian descent, strives to serve society on a small and large scale, and holds fast in instilling a sense of pride in the background of each individual sister. On December 10, 1998 at St. John's University in New York ten astounding women came together to form Sigma Sigma Rho, making it the first South Asian interest sorority of its kind on the East Coast.
