Sigma Omega Phi

Sigma Omega Phi Multicultural Sorority, Inc. was founded on April 26, 1990 on CSU Chico campus. It was created to unite women regardless of their race and origin. As a multicultural sorority, we believe in “opening minds through culture, education, and unity.” Our letters represent a tradition of dedication, educated, and so SOPhisticated women, whose lives reflect an underlying commitment to culture, education, and unity. We also stand for women empowerment. We are a small group of women, but we firmly believe in the quality of sisters, not the quantity. We take pride in the fact that we have close personal relationships with each other. Currently, there are five other chapters across California,: Fresno State, Sacramento State, San Jose State, CSU Stanislaus and the National Hispanic University. Our philanthropy is child abuse and neglect awareness. On February of 2000, we officially adopted National Child Abuse Prevention Month as our sorority wide philanthropy. Fundraisers and charity evens are organized on all and fund programs for abused children. In order to bring light to women’s issues, each year Sigma Omega Phi hosts an event called the Women’s Symposium. This event is held in March during National Women’s History Month. It covers a variety of educational subjects such as domestic violence, women’s health, self-defense, and the empowerment of all women. Our goal is to bring awareness to women’s issues in order to empower women of every background and to also celebrate our diversity and history.
