EVERY SEMESTER, Sigma Psi Zeta Sorority at the George Washington University hosts Rush, a time for recruitment of new members and for interested girls to get to know the sisters and the organization. Rush is made up of a mix of events that occur throughout a 2-3 week time period and will introduce girls to the New Member Process at the GIMs. Whether you’re new to school, curious about what Multicultural Greek life is, or just want to enjoy some great food and meet new people, Sigmas welcome all girls to come to rush and we want to get to know each one of you! Because rush is FREE AND NON-BINDING, there’s nothing to lose!
What makes Sigma different from other sororities? Sigma Psi Zeta is a multicultural, Asian-interest sorority and the first of its kind to be founded on the East Coast. On the surface, we are not unlike other sororities. We have our national philanthropy, our history, our social activities and we give back to the community. However, what sets us apart from any organization is our sisters. Sigma sisters are motivated, determined, strong and independent women. Come out to our events and get to know us !
I am not Asian. Can I still join? Of course! We are an Asian-interest but not Asian-exclusive sorority. Sigma is very diverse and within Pi Chapter, we have sisters of German, African-American, Ecuadorian, Caribbean, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indonesian, Filipino, Cambodian and Burmese backgrounds.
What does the New Member Education Program consist of? We often equate the program to taking a 4-credit language class. During the New Member Education Program, girls will learn about Sigma Psi Zeta’s history, traditions and our sisters. In addition, they will be able to develop their leadership and time management skills. Sigma Psi Zeta has a strict NO HAZING policy, which includes causing any physical, emotional, or other form of distress.
