On May 24, 2000, seven women founded Sigma Delta Sigma Sorority at the University of California, Los Angeles. Our founders wanted to create a unique organization that broke away from the conventional stereotype of "only being open to women of a particular ethnic group." A dynamic sorority that stands on its three main pillars of Community Service, Cultural Awareness, and Sisterhood, Sigma Delta Sigma takes pride in being a multiracial sorority and opens its arms to women of all different cultural backgrounds.
Since its inception, Sigma Delta Sigma has operated as an independent sorority and, therefore, has had the freedom to shape itself according to the needs and wishes of its members in its formative years. Throughout the academic year, we engage and participate in a diverse array of fun and enriching activities that foster leadership and organizational skills amongst sisters, all while aiding the community at large.
Sigma Delta Sigma Sorority, Delta Chapter at the University of Southern California was established on May 24, 2013 by five ambitious and dedicated young women. We are a member of the USC Multicultural Greek Council and we enjoy having active participation in deciding how the sorority will run in the years to come. Although we are fairly new to the USC Greek community, we are rapidly expanding and making our presence known within the local and outer USC neighborhood.
