Chapter History

Nu Chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma was established at the University of Central Missouri in 1915 as the first sorority on campus. Our chapter was both proud and excited as we celebrated 100 years on campus in November 2015!

 

In March of 2017, Nu Chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma was recognized by UCM Fraternity and Sorority Life as the overall top chapter by being awarded the Five Star Award, the highest honor any Greek chapter at UCM can receive!  This was the third year in a row that we have been selected for this award!

Along with this incredible honor, Nu Chapter was also awarded the Outstanding Financial Management Sorority Award, Outstanding Philanthropy and Community Service Sorority Award,  Outstanding New Member Education Sorority Award, and Outstanding Scholarship Programming Sorority Award.  We also received recognition for Scholastic Achievement by Student Experience and Engagement for the seventh year in a row!

 

At Nu Chapter's annual Founder's Day celebration, the chapter has been recognized by our National organization for each of the past 4 years.  Nu chapter was awarded Chapter of the Year, an annual recognition to the top ranking Tri Sigma chapter on a National level, in both 2015 and 2016.  

 

In addition to being recognized as the National Chapter of the Year, we have also been honored to receive the Membership Selection Award, the Membership Education Award, the Ritual and Values Award, and the Jane Kinderman Standards of Efficiency Award!  These awards have been amazing to receive; they make Founder's Day an even more wonderful day for all of us, and we are always excited that many of our parents are there to share the day with us.

In June 2016, ten of our members and two advisors attended our National Convention in Chicago, IL.  The National Convention is held every three years, known as a triennium.  At the Convention, we received the ultimate honor by being recognized as the National Chapter of the Triennium for Sigma Sigma Sigma!!  This award is the culmination of three years of working together to create a strong sisterhood and become strong women of character; we are beyond excited and honored.  We were also recognized as one of the Top 10 Chapters for Standards of Efficiency.
