Parent FAQ

Making the decision to go greek doesn't come easy for all. And during recruitment, there's a lot of different components that go into deciding which chapter is the best fit. To learn more about how your daughter can thrive in Sigma Kappa scroll down! If you have anymore questions, feel free to reach out to our president, Christine Lockhart, and thetaopresident@gmail.com

 

How is the time commitment?

Joining and participating in a sorority takes time, but there are so many benefits that come with it! However, many of our events are optional but there are some others that are required, like our weekly chapter meetings.

Sigma Kappa believes that you get out what you put in. There are so many rewards you get as a member of Sigma Kappa, including lifelong friends, a strong support system, academic encouragement, leadership skills and networking opportunities. We also have many extra activities for sisters to get involved in by joining committees, signing up for intramural teams, or participating at our optional events.

 

What is the financial obligation?

Sigma Kappa is a not-for-profit corporation that relies on collected fees from all chapters nationwide to finance services and events for the sorority. If your daughter joins, she will be given a very detailed breakdown of all the financial responsibilities early on in her membership period.

It can be a bit overwhelming at first, but our Vice President of Finance is always available to work out payment plans if necessary. We want to be as transparent as possible with our members, there can be more information found on our national website.

 

Is there an academic requirement?

In order to join Sigma Kappa, we require a 3.0 GPA from high school or a 2.8 GPA from college. All sisters are encouraged to maintain an overall 3.0 GPA but expected to hold a 2.5 GPA at minimum to remain in good standing. If a sister falls below this GPA she will be provided with an Academic Assistance Plan with the VP of Academic Excellence.

Theta Omicron recognizes that education is the primary purpose of college and provides many resources and support to aid girls in reaching their academic goals. We try our hardest to make sure sorority life doesn't hinder girls from attaining the grades they want. 

Our sisters pride ourselves on our GPA! The chapter's average is 3.44, placing us at 4th out of 16 Panhellenic councils at Arizona State! This also means we are above the All-Greek GPA of 3.20 and All-Sorority GPA of 3.33.

 

How can parents get involved?

We have a few events that parents are welcome to attend throughout the year to show our appreciation! In the Fall we invite parents to a week full of fun activities for Arizona State's Family Weekend, including our own section to watch the football game! We also alternate between hosting a Father's Weekend or a Mother's Weekend in the Spring where we celebrate and treat our parent's to organized group functions.
