Chapter History

The Lambda Beta chapter of Sigma Kappa at Coastal Carolina University was founded in 2014. Since being founded, we have become incredibly active within our community and university. 

Philanthropy

  • Every year our chapter participates in the local Walk to End Alzheimer's. In 2019, we beat our goal and raised the most money we ever had at $12,000. 
  • The sisters of Lambda Beta currently visit and assist the residents at Carolina Gardens senior living home in Conway, SC.
  • In 2019, we held our first homecoming dance with the residents of Carolina Gardens, as well as crowning a homecoming king and queen.
  • In 2016, our chapter won the 1874 giving grant, and with this grant we donated memory blankets to the residents of Brightwater nursing home. 
  • In 2019 we held our first annual Ultra Violet Karnival, where all proceeds were donated to the Sigma Kappa Foundation.
