Omicron Alpha Chapter
Sigma Lambda Gamma is a national sorority founded April 9th, 1990 at the University of Iowa. We are a Latina-based sorority with Multicultural membership and we have grown to be a widely respected sorority, founded on five principles: Academics, Community Service, Cultural Awareness, Morals & Ethics, and Social Interaction. Our national philanthropies consist of the TRIO programs and Breast Cancer Awareness. Nationally, we stress the importance of morals, ethics, and education as part of our daily lives. We dedicate ourselves in the empowerment of Latina women and women of all cultures. The nationalities in our sisterhood reflect over 109 countries of origin. We strive in educating the community about the many cultures we live with and on the importance in knowing about these different cultures.
The Omicron Alpha has shown its commitment to Grand Valley 's campus and the outside community through our yearly participation in educational and social events. We participate in and sponsor many community service projects and our chapter continually sponsors events based around Sigma Lambda Gamma's five founding principles. The Omicron Alpha chapter has continued to carry on our chapter’s founders as well as our founding mother’s visions through providing a source of strength and unity amongst women on our campus and our community.
