Letter from the Chapter

Hello, Potential New Members! 


My name is Kayla Hay, and I’m the president of the zeta sigma chapter of Sigma Kappa here at UAB! 

I am so excited that you’re going through recruitment, and I’d love to share my personal experience of recruitment with you! 


As a freshman in Fall 2019, I originally wasn’t interested in recruitment. I was used to the stereotypical views of greek life that we so often see in movies and TV shows, which I knew was not for me. I started researching UAB’s panhellenic community after I found out my roommate was going through recruitment. Being an out of state student from Washington D.C., I knew absolutely no one attending UAB, and ultimately decided I’d go through recruitment to hopefully make a few friends, even if I didn’t end up joining a sorority. But, during recruitment, it was clear that there was something different about the sororities at UAB; they supported each other and encouraged you to have friends in other sororities and other student organizations. As I went through recruitment, I enjoyed hearing about how each chapter supported each other by attending each others’ events and helping raise money for each others’ philanthropies. 


When I walked into Sigma Kappa, I knew I had made the right choice to go through recruitment. The ladies of Sigma Kappa were mature, classy, and kind. With every girl who I spoke to, I could feel how passionate and excited they truly were about their sisterhood and philanthropy; they were radiant with joy and could not wait to tell me about how much they love Sigma Kappa. I felt at home in Sigma Kappa and still feel this way. 


 By joining Sigma Kappa, I was met with open arms to a chapter that really does encourage every sister to be themselves while growing as a group. I have experienced personal growth in myself through the opportunity to lead; I was encouraged to step into all sorts of leadership positions including vice president of new member education, and now president! 


 Sigma Kappa has given me some of the best friends I could hope for, and we’ll definitely be bridesmaids in each others’ weddings… and I truly mean it! I was just a bridesmaid in my Big’s wedding! This sisterhood of loyal ladies has encouraged me to do my best academically and always work towards being a better “me” than the day before. I am truly thankful to be able to call these ladies my sisters.  


I hope you find the perfect home for you during recruitment, just as I did! 


Love in Sigma Kappa, 

Kayla Hay
