Alpha Sigma Tau
Alpha Sigma Tau was founded on November 4th, 1899 in Michigan. There are about 90 chapters nationwide including our own, Epsilon Rho. Our chapter is comprised of about 89 girls, soon to be a bit larger after recruitment! Our colors are emerald green and gold, and our jewel is the pearl. We use the symbol of the anchor to represent a strong sisterhood that we can always find our way home to. Academics are extremely important to us. To commemorate our efforts towards academics, at the national conference in the Summer of 2018 our chapter was given the academic programming excellence award!! Philanthropy is also close to our hearts. Nationally, we support women's wellness initiative which works to empower women through service and projects. Locally, our chapter supports Haven House out of Buffalo which works to help victims of family and domestic abuse. We host many events throughout the year, sometimes with other organizations, as a way to fundraise for these causes, and any other causes our sisters feel drawn to.
Delta Phi Epsilon
D Phi E
Delta Phi Epsilon was founded on March 17, 1917 at NYU Law school and was the first sorority to be open to young women of all religions. Our colors are purple and gold, our mascot is the unicorn, our gem is the pearl and our symbol is a triangle. The Epsilon Iota Chapter at SUNY Geneseo currently has about 100 members, yet each sister feels so close with one another, as a strong sisterhood is something essential to the members of Delta Phi Epsilon. Our National Philanthropy is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, along with the Delta Phi Epsilon Education Scholarship. A philanthropy very close to this chapter's heart is ANAD. ANAD stands for Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders, and during the spring semester, Delta Phi Epsilon dedicates an entire week to body positivity and mental health awareness. Each sister of Delta Phi Epsilon has a unique personality that brings something new to the chapter which makes our sisterhood so strong. As a sisterhood we strive to help and allow our sisters to grow to reach their full potential while at SUNY Geneseo.
Sigma Delta Tau
Sigma Delta Tau is a national sorority committed to the goal of empowering women. Steeped in tradition, our local chapter at Geneseo produces strong friendships that go beyond just the college experience. As a group of women, we work to achieve this goal through scholarship, service, sisterhood, and leadership. By promoting academic achievement, building leadership skills, fostering a love for philanthropy and creating lifelong bonds, Sigma Delta Tau encourages all of our sisters to grow as an individual and within the organization. Our sorority strives to instill a sense of confidence and provide an inclusive, comfortable atmosphere for each and every one of our members, making it a place to call home.
Sigma Kappa was founded on November 9th, 1874 at Colby College in Waterville, Maine. There are 123 collegiate chapters, 110 alumnae chapters, and a total of 165,000 members nationwide. Our colors are maroon and lavender. Our Sigma Kappa Chapter, Theta Pi, is comprised of 99 women. Sisterhood and service are two big focuses of Theta Pi. At our National Convention in the Summer of 2018, we were given a national sisterhood recognition award showing that even nationally, Theta Pi is recognized for having one of the strongest sisterhoods. This past fall, with one of our main philanthropies focusing on the Alzheimer’s Association, we were also recognized as one of the top fundraisers for the Alzheimer's walk in Rochester raising almost over $10,000! In addition, we have been a top relay team for the last four years on campus, raising about $18,000 each year as a sorority! Just as important friendship, loyalty, and service are to our sisters, we also pride ourselves on personal growth. In Spring 2018, Sigma Kappa had the top GPA across all Panhellenic organizations averaging at 3.25 while the Panhellenic average was 3.19 and all women’s was 3.14. We as a chapter are so excited to strengthen our sisterhood with spring 2019 recruitment and look forward to welcoming our potential new members with open arms!
