Breathtaking Beta Chapter
University of Michigan
In an effort that began the winter semester of 1998, a group of dedicated women started organizing around a strong desire to bring Sigma Lambda Gamma to the University of Michigan. These women began forming a strong foundation, demonstrating their interest in Sigma Lambda Gamma and becoming a colony.
Beta Chapter is proud to continue the legacy that the founding sisters started many years ago. These women include Desirea Alvarez, Lucy Arellano, Cynthia Carrillo, Ixsy Ramirez, Amanda Rico, Jennifer Rivera, Norma Sanchez, Veronica Sanchez, Aileen Tung and Lily Wu. Alicia Ortez accepted the position of Chapter Advisor.
Beta Chapter is thrilled to see our membership grow in our chapter as well as the nation, welcoming diverse and truly dedicated women into our sisterhood. As we continue to maintain the legacy our founding mothers established, we are proud to provide the University of Michigan campus community a diverse perspective committed to our five principles.
Greetings from the Sisters of Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. Breathtaking Beta Chapter at the University of Michigan! We welcome you to explore our website and use it as a resource to learn more about the Women of Distinction. We are the largest historically Latina-based, multicultural sorority in the nation.
Currently, our national sisterhood membership reflects over 112 ethnicities from around the world! Sigma Lambda Gamma is an academic, cultural, service and social organization dedicated to the empowerment of women in higher education. We urge you to contact us and get to know our members by attending events or sending us an email. If you're interested in Greek Life, take the time to get to know the Greek community, but specifically the members in the organization to see which Sorority best suits you!
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to perform our best inside the classroom as a top priority. Sisters nationwide use their academics in order to reach goals that seem impossible. Many SLG sisters attend graduate and professional schools after undergrad.
Sigma Lambda Gamma not only provides support to other sisters, but strives to give back to the community locally and back home. We also aim to give back to our communities through our diverse backgrounds.
Further, the sorority shall work to better serve the needs and wants of all people by disseminating information about the diverse culture, which we all share.
Morals and Ethics
The Purpose of Sigma Lambda Gamma Sorority shall be primarily one of promoting standards of excellence in morality, ethics and education.
Sigma Lambda Gamma strives to have balance in the sisterhood and have relationships with multiple organizations on campus.
Hermanas por vida, sisters for life.
"Culture is pride, pride is success."
