History of Alpha Alpha Charter

Sigma Psi Zeta is a multicultural national sorority that advances professionalism, philanthropy, and leadership. Starting in the fall of 2006, eight of us dedicated several months of hard work to establish a chapter of Sigma Psi Zeta on campus. On April 7th, 2007, the Alpha Alpha Charter of Sigma Psi Zeta was officially founded at Yale University. We all felt really proud to bring Sigma to New Haven, because it is truly a one-of-a-kind organization.

Chartering the Yale chapter of this sorority was a rewarding experience close to our hearts. While traveling to New York, Boston, and Philadelphia to meet with regional chapters and the national board, we met many fun and ambitious girls who shared our own ideals.  Along the way, we also made lifelong friends in college and met many alumni whom we really could look up to. We fell in love with the idea of having close friendships as the driving thrust behind a meaningful, achieving organization.

Our vision in 2007 was to bring together passionate, professional and active young women at Yale in sisterhood. Since its founding on campus, Sigma Psi Zeta has become an expanding social and professional organization on campus. We host Yale’s branch of the National Bone Marrow Drive, raise awareness for women’s issues, and volunteer for the New Haven soup kitchen and domestic violence shelters. We also collaborate with the law and medical schools, other Greek organizations, and our national network of sisterships to exchange and promote new ideas in our university community.

Through our experiences as a Sigma, we have all grown together– personally and professionally. It is our hope that Sigma at Yale will be just as special an experience for future members.
