Letter from the Chapter
Hello, Potential New Member!
My name is Miranda Worley, and I am the president of the Zeta Sigma Chapter of Sigma Kappa here at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
First and foremost, thank you so much for visiting our page and showing interest in UAB Greek Life. As a freshman, I never thought I would join a sorority. However, making the choice to join Sigma Kappa was the best thing I could have done for myself! Though I wish I could have joined sooner, the Fall 2016 semester became the perfΣΚt time for me to be a part of something that interested me and scared me at the same time. During my freshman year at UAB, I hadn't really taken the time to make very many friends. I saw other sorority women on campus hanging out with their sisters in class and out and about on campus, and this made me consider joining a sorority. I also had the urge to join an organization and hold some kind of leadership position (though I never could have ever imagined I would become president). After joining Sigma Kappa, I immediately felt welcomed, and I could already feel that this chapter had such a strong sisterhood even though I had only been a new member for a short time. During the Fall of 2017, I was urged to apply to be the Vice President of Finance for Sigma Kappa, a position that I thought I had no interest in. I was elected as the VPF, and I hit the ground running trying to learn the ins and outs of the position. This position, one that I never saw myself enjoying, ended up blossoming leadership potential I didn't know I had. The next semester, after a lot of encouragement from my amazing sisters, I ran for president and somehow won! My sisters saw leadership potential in me that I had never seen before. I never knew that I had an urge to lead until I became a Sigma Kappa. Sigma Kappa has changed my life forever, and I am eternally grateful for all of the things this wonderful organization has taught me. My hope for you is that you can also find a home away from home, an amazing sisterhood, and personal growth in Sigma Kappa.
All of this being said, I encourage you to look at the other Panhellenic groups at UAB, too, because each group is full of amazing women. Finding a place where you are loved and happy is what is important during Recruitment, I just happened to find my happiness in Sigma Kappa. Sigma Kappa is and will always be near and dear to my heart and my home away from home. ❤
