Sigma Kappa was founded on November 9, 1874 at Colby College in Waterville, Maine. Mary Caffrey Low Carter was the first official member of Sigma Kappa. Elizabeth Gorham Hoag another founding member designed the first Sigma Kappa emblem. Their practical voice was Ida Mabel Fuller Pierce, always keeping them focused. Louise Helen Coburn wrote a majority of the Initiation ceremony. Last but not least, Frances Elliott Mann Hall the first Sigma Kappa to marry. These women, among many others have helped to create the wonderful sorority we get to be apart of today. They've created things such as our official jewel being the pearl. Our symbols, which include, the heart and done. The Sigma Kappa colors which are maroon and lavender. Along with the wild purple violet being the sorority flower.
The Lambda Beta chapter of Sigma Kappa at Coastal Carolina University was founded in 2014. There isn't much history to our chapter at the moment but throughout the years history will be made and documented.
