Delta Nu Chapter | Longwood University
Welcome to the website of Sigma Kappa at Longwood University! We are excited to see the bright futures we have in this chapter and outside of it. We are proud to be a part of the Greek community at Longwood!
Sigma Kappa was founded at Colby College in Waterville, Maine on November 9th, 1874. Now after 140 years, Sigma Kappa has founded 233 collegiate and alumnae chapters across the U.S. Our chapter, Delta Nu, was founded in 1959 by 28 courageous women, becoming the 7th sorority at Longwood University. Consistent with our Founders’ thoughts in 1874, 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. Our chapter has a membership of strong dedicated women and each sister is unique in her talents and skills.
The purpose of Sigma Kappa is to provide women lifelong opportunities and support for social, intellectual, and spiritual development by bringing women together to positively impact our communities. Sigma Kappa members follow four standards that guide them throughout their life: Loyalty, Friendship, Service, and Personal Growth, all bound together by a promise. Throughout our time as Sigma Kappa women, we have found friendships that will last a lifetime and have learned skills that make us revolutionary leaders of today and tomorrow.
Sigma Kappa is more than just a collegiate experience; it is a lifetime of commitment, support and opportunity awaiting you. It marks the beginning of a relationship that will last for a lifetime. Our membership is not just for four years, it's for life.
We invite you to explore our website to discover what there is to love about Sigma Kappa Sorority and to catch a glimpse of what it is like to be a sister at Longwood University!
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.
