National History

Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority, Incorporated is a historically South Asian-based sorority founded on December 10, 1998, by ten Distinguished Ladies at St. John’s University in New York.  Sigma Sigma Rho is unique and special because it is one of the few South Asian based Greek organizations to exist nationwide. The name Sigma Sigma Rho was chosen for this organization because it substantially upholds our motives and goals, which are expressed in Sisterhood, Society, and Remembrance. Sigma Sigma Rho takes immense pride in our sisters based on our values and culture.
