Since their founding in 1874, both Sigma Kappa and the University of Nevada, Reno have provided collegiate women with the opportunity to develop themselves academically, socially, and philanthropically. The two combined in 2006 when the Kappa Xi chapter of Sigma Kappa received their charter through the university.
As of Fall 2018, the chapter has increased to over 180 sisters--all committed to sisterhood, philanthropy, loyalty, and personal growth. Reno serves as the perfect environment to foster lifelong relationships with sisters all brought together by the mystic bond.
While the Kappa Xi chapter does participate in regular community philanthropies, university programs, and social events, the sisterhood does not end with graduation. Though the chapter is young, the community alumnae is heavily involved. Sisters of Sigma Kappa remain sisters for life, and that is not forgotten within the Kappa Xi chapter.
Though many of us associate the benefits of sorority membership with the college years, Sigma Kappa is a lifelong influence on its members. Besides offering support, encouragement, and an atmosphere that promotes success and well-being, Sigma Kappa creates opportunities for women to become part of a worldwide sisterhood of successful, caring women.
