Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. is a sxsterhood of womxn who have chosen this organization as a manner to achieve personal development and awareness not only for themselves, but for their community. Furthermore, the sorority continues to be a pioneer in the Fraternal world through development of innovative programming initiatives. Today, Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. is a historically Latinx-based national sorority with multicultural memberships in chapters and alumnae associations across the nation.
The X-quisite Xi Beta chapter of Sigma Lambda Gamma was first recognized as a colony on December 15, 2001 through the efforts of an interest group called the Collegiate Ladies Advancing Within Society (C.L.A.W.S.). Through the hard work of our Fearless Fifteen Founders, we were officially recognized as a chapter on August 30, 2002 at the University of Oklahoma.
Since then, our chapter has grown immensely and continues to uphold our five principles:
Our primary goal is to achieve a higher education. Our members are expected to uphold strong academic standards & practices. Aside from unconditional support, we provide our sisters with necessary resources to succeed in college.
Our service to others is a key component of understanding our community and the environment we are a part of. By helping others in our communities we not only empower ourselves, but we also help make the world a better place.
"Culture is Pride, Pride is Success." Though we are a Latina based sorority, we embrace women of all cultures and respect all cultural backgrounds. We respect and love the beauty and differences that each culture displays, and teach our sisters to appreciate the richness of not only their culture, but all cultures. Women of all cultural backgrounds are welcomed.
Interacting with each other socially is a healthy part of growing and understanding different people. We appreciate the diversity within our campus community and look forward to learning from each other. Our sisters are committed to reaching out to different types of organizations and individuals at the University of Oklahoma and creating networks that will strengthen our community & ourselves.
Morals & Ethics
Developing and maintaining good moral judgement and representing ourselves & our sisterhood with ethical practices are two characteristics that every sister strives to achieve. We take pride in representing ourselves with respect and dignity, not only as women, but as Sigma Lambda Gamma women of distinction.
