Back To School!

Hello Parents!

After an eventful summer, the members of Sigma Kappa traveled back to our home in Pullman, Washington. Once we had all moved in, we got to work preparing for a busy week of recruitment, where over one thousand potential new members walked through our door. We really enjoyed participating in primary recruitment and ended up welcoming fifty-eight new members into our chapter!
Shortly after the excitement of Bid Day, school was upon us. August quickly came to an end while the members got back into the swing of fall classes and began to look forward to future events like Cougar Football Saturdays and the Sisterhood Retreat, where the whole chapter will go camping together.  It will be a wonderful opportunity to bond with our sisters and give the new members a chance to connect more with Sigma Kappa.  We are so excited to welcome the new members into our sisterhood!

Upcoming Dates:
– September 8th-9th: Sisterhood Retreat

Featured below are a few photographs from the start of primary recruitment to Bid Day.

It’s Fall!

Hello Parents!

With September came the beginning of Fall and the reintroduction of down vests, pumpkin spice lattes, and of course, Cougar Football Saturdays! Our sisters have enjoyed gathering in Martin Stadium each weekend to cheer on the Cougs in what is turning out to be an exciting football season. The second weekend of the month, over one hundred of our members traveled to Deer Lake Resort for our sisterhood retreat where we were able to enjoy the fresh mountain air and participate in fun sisterhood activities. Later that week, our Continuing Membership Chair, Haeley Johnston, organized Fall Informal Recruitment, from which we welcomed eight new women into Sigma Kappa. The new members are learning more about our sorority each week as they eagerly await initiation into the chapter. We officially pinned them as new members of Sigma Kappa this past month and can’t wait until October eighth, when they will become initiated members of the Alpha Gamma Chapter of Sigma Kappa!
September was filled with many exciting events for our sisters, including Big/Little Reveal! Each new member is matched up with a “Big Sister” in our sorority to act as a role model for the younger member and to guide them through college. The relationship between a Big and Little is very special and lifelong bonds are often formed. Now that September has come to an end, we are looking forward to what October will bring for our sisters. The women of our chapter have been raising money and are getting ready to participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Spokane this month; we are proud to represent our chapter and show our dedication to this important cause.

Upcoming Dates:
– Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Spokane: Oct. 7th
– Initiation: Oct. 8th
– Homecoming Week: Oct. 16th – 21st
– Dad’s Weekend: Nov. 3rd – 5th
