142 years, almost a century and a half ago, Sigma Kappa was founded at Colby College in Waterville, Maine. Mary Caffery Low, the first female student admitted into Colby, Elizabeth Gorham Hoag, Ida Fuller Pierce, Frances Mann Hall, and Louise Helen Coburn started a literary and social society that has morphed itself into a nationwide organization.
November 9, 1874: the official founding of Sigma Kappa. Every year, on it’s anniversary, we celebrate the start of the sorority that brought us our best friends and sisters. This year, we celebrated at the Peachtree event center with a luncheon. Girls celebrated individually by posting pictures of the friends they’ve made in Sigma Kappa.
A huge thank you to Mary, Elizabeth, Ida, Frances, and Louise for bringing Sigma Kappa into our lives!
