Dear Sigma Zetans:

I hope your spring semester is off to a good start.  I know some of you are dealing, for the second consecutive January, with the aftermath of a horrible blizzard, so please stay safe!  Our 2016 National Convention is just two months away, March 31- April 2 and will be hosted by our oldest chapter, the Beta chapter at McKendree University, Lebanon, IL.  

2015 - 2016 Sigma Zeta Service Project Theme

The 2015 National Convention Service Committee selected the theme of "Developing a Culture of Sustainability".

Sigma Zeta Student Research Awards

Congratulations to eight Sigma Zeta members as recipients of the 2015 Research Awards! The research proposals were reviewed at the Nov. 14 officers meeting and awards were announced December 4, 2015.
