Hello Sigma Zetans!

With the beginning of the new academic year, the Sigma Zeta National Office is once again open for business, and we look forward to working with you.  Hopefully your chapters are beginning to meet and make plans for a productive year.  All the national officers want to thank the chapter advisors, student officers and members for the hard work you put into making Sigma Zeta a meaningful and successful organization. Our strength is in what happens at the local level within each chapter, and it’s important that we share our local successes through chapter reports, postings to our webpage, Sigma Zeta’s Facebook page, our email list or in person at the national convention. 

Sigma Zeta almost reached the 800 new member mark (793) for the third year in a row

2015 - 2016 Sigma Zeta Service Project Theme

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

Communities not only being our local chapters but also our local communities and our local youth.
