Letter from the Chapter
Hi everyone! My name is Lucy LaSuer, and it is an honor to serve as President of the
Theta Phi Chapter of Sigma Kappa here at UTC. On behalf of my sisters, we are thrilled
to welcome you to campus and look forward to meeting you very soon! UTC has an
amazing Greek system, and we can’t wait to show you what a wonderful experience
sorority life can bring to your college years.
Sigma Kappa was founded in 1874 by five young women attending Colby College in
Waterville, Maine. They were the first and ONLY women allowed there at that time! Our
founders formed a unique support system that we now know and love, Sigma Kappa.
They were dedicated to bringing lifelong opportunities for social, intellectual and
spiritual development to bring women together to positively impact our communities!
Our chapter has thrived for over 22 years at UTC, providing a supportive environment of
friends that will forever change your life. We are extremely proud to be nationally
recognized as a “Chapter of Excellence” for our accomplishments within our campus,
community and national organization.
My sisters live our values of friendship, service, personal growth and loyalty each day.
I’m so very proud of the women that make up Theta Phi. Our members work extremely
hard each year providing countless of hours of community service and demonstrating
outstanding leadership and dedication to our various organizations on campus. The
members of our chapter are the foundation to our success and all we achieve. They are so
full of creativity and talents that continue to inspire and push me to be a better individual.
The love we share as sisters in Sigma Kappa offers support and a positive atmosphere
that will not fail you. My sisters have watched me individually grow, accomplish my
goals, discover things about myself that I never thought were possible and always
encouraged me every step of the way. The tears, laughter and joy we’ve experienced
over the years make up our strong sisterhood that has forever bonded us together. I
would not be the person I am today without these women in my life.
Sigma Kappa creates opportunities for women to become part of a worldwide sisterhood
of successful, caring women. Because growth and friendship are important to women
throughout their lives, the Sigma Kappa experience doesn't end with graduation. Our
bond continues to bring us together over the years, to share experiences, serve others, and
have fun! With Sigma Kappa, college is just the beginning of a sisterhood that will bring
you happiness for a lifetime.
I am privileged to be a member of such a rewarding organization. I hope that you too get
the same opportunity to find a home in our Panhellenic community. It's difficult to
explain from the inside looking out, and difficult to see from the outside looking in.
Sigma Kappa gives women the opportunity to grow and be better leaders, friends, sisters,
This year is going to be amazing! We have so much to look forward to this upcoming
semester and in the future! Our sisters look forward to meeting each of you, and we wish
you the best of luck in your experiences at UTC! Go MOCS!
Sigma's Love and Mine,
Theta Phi President 2017
