Why choose Phi Sigma Sigma: “We have such a strong sisterhood and are so closely bonded,” President Madison Rose said.
For its on campus event, Phi Sigma Sigma is going to be celebrating an anti-hazing week, as they do every semester. On Sept. 23, students will be able to leave their mark on an anti-hazing banner that will be set up in the Ceddia Union Building (CUB).
During homecoming, the organization will be holding its annual Rock-a-thon at the King Street Deli to raise money for their national philanthropy by asking for donations in a 24-hour period.
Looking into the future, Phi Sigma Sigma is hoping to aim high as they look for sorority of the year, again. Phi Sigma Sigma was awarded Sorority of the Year for 2013.
“We were so excited when we won. We have been working really hard and to actually win boasted our spirits,” Rose said.
“It reminds you why you are doing all this and why you should be a Phi Sig,” treasurer Lena Delfin added.
Rose explained that the organization worked on recruitment during 2013-2014, where they hit its cap at 40. This year the ladies of Phi Sig are looking to refocus and put an emphasis on their community service.
Rose advocates for not just Phi Sig, but Greek Life overall.
“Go Greek. Phi Sig may not be your fit, but Greek Life in general gives you the ability to develop leadership skills and to join a new community,” Rose said.
