Delta Nu Chapter | Longwood University

The Delta Nu Chapter of Sigma Kappa was founded at Longwood University, formally known as Longwood College, during the early fall of 1959. 28 devoted women founded this chapter on September 19th, 1959, becoming the 7th sorority to be a part of the Greek community at Longwood. Without these women, Delta Nu Chapter would not exist, nor would we be the unique group of women we are today.

We are proud to have sisters involved in other organizations around campus, including Longwood Ambassadors, Student Educators for Active Leadership, College Panhellenic Council, and members of multiple academic fraternities offered on campus.

Sigma Kappa sisters make a bold commitment every day: we live with heart. To us, this means committing ourselves to one another, the causes we believe in, and a shared dedication to seeking intellectual, spiritual, and social enlightenment throughout our lives.

As a chapter, we participate in spring formal recruitment, held each year by the College Panhellenic Council and Fraternity and Sorority Life at Longwood University. Sigma Kappa has set the standards for leadership, service, and personal development, and we are proud of what makes our chapter unique!
