Chapter History

Chapter History

Approximately 500 young women answered the call in the Collegian newspaper to start a new sorority on K-State’s campus in the fall of 1990. Open recruitment, led by ten women from Sigma Kappa National Headquarters ( took place at K-State. One hundred and fifty one members pledged Sigma Kappa in the fall of 1990.

The founding class of our Chapter consisted of 120 women who were the first to be initiated into the Theta Tau Chapter of Sigma Kappa Sorority. These women had the ultimate responsibility of starting our Chapter from scratch. After going through recruitment in the fall of 1990, they were initiated on January 26, 1991, after which the Theta Tau Chapter of Sigma Kappa was awarded its charter, which now hangs in our Founders Room.

Without these women, Theta Tau Chapter would not exist, nor would we be the unique group of women we are today. A special thanks is extended to the members of the founding class, whose hard work and inspiration has made our chapter a solid member of the Greek community at Kansas State University.

Currently now Sigma Kappa continues to grow! The Theta Tau Chapter has around 120 members today! With 50 women accepting bids on Bid Day 2018, we are excited to see what these women have to offer into the sisterhood! 

In 2017 the Theta Tau Chapter was awarded the Three-star (It is out of 3 stars) Chapter award. Only one other Sigma Kappa in the nation received this award. It is an amazing accomplishment for Theta Tau, and everyone is so happy and proud of it.
