The Ten Rays of Sisterhood

Ten Rays of sisterhood

When our sorority first began, our ten Founders came together to establish an organization that would better their university and community. These ten women united together to create a lasting entity. The Ten Rays of Sisterhood, like the ten Founders, form the basis for our sorority. They are the characteristics all sisters work to best exemplify.

As our sisterhood grows and evolves, Sigma Psi Zeta National develops initiatives that will encourage our sisters to achieve. while still remaining connected to the history and vision of the sorority. With this in mind, the Ten Rays of Sisterhood link the natural progression of the organization to the spirit with which the sorority was first envisioned in the Fall of 1993.
