Sigma Lambda Gamma is a national sorority founded on April 9th, 1990 at the University of Iowa. We are a Latina-based sorority that emphasizes Multicultural membership. We have grown to become widely respected within the Greek community and the fastest growing fraternal organization in the United States.  The nationalities in our sisterhood reflect over 109 countries of origin. So, we dedicate ourselves to providing a mechanism of empowerment to ALL women. We strive to educate the community about cultural diversity and the importance of being culturally aware within our communities.  The Omicron Alpha Chapter was founded on Grand Valley's campus on February 20, 1999. Since then we have been the first and only multicultural sorority at GVSU.  We also played a crucial role in creating and organizing the Multicultural Greek Council that exists at the university today.  Lastly, the five principles that our sisters aim to live by are the following: Academics, Community Service, Cultural Awareness, Morals and Ethics, and Social Interaction.
