Sigma Kappa provides valuable leadership development opportunities to its members. As an organization Sigma Kappa encourages our members to be involved in at least one extracurricular activity during their collegiate experience. Because of this focus on involvement outside of Sigma Kappa, our sisters are able to engage with the campus and community in ways that are important to them.
We as a chapter pride ourselves on being a sisterhood of sister’s supporting our sister in whatever their passion or interests are. You will catch us at lacrosse games cheering our our sisters or sitting front row during a musical performance supporting our sisters involved in Mines Little Theater or Colorado School of Mines Orchestra and Band. Sigma Kappa sisters have travelled the world together whether it’s for a study abroad experience or participating in Hike4Help’s annual Nepal trip and there is always a group of us at the house waiting to hear about all the amazing adventures they went on.
When we’re not busy being leaders on our campus or studying for our upcoming exam we love to kick back and have some fun! Here are some of the events we participated in last year as a chapter.
Formal and Semiformal
With Semi Formal in fall and Formal in spring, these events are opportunities for our chapter to get together, bring our closest friends and loved ones, and see the amazing sights of Colorado. Semi Formal 2016 was a group trip to see the Denver Nuggets play at the Pepsi Center, and Formal 2017 was a gorgeous dance at the Christies of Genesee!
Mr. Big Digger
Each E-Days, we kick off the weekend with our male beauty pageant, Mr. Big Digger. With Formal Attire, Swimwear, and Talent as our categories, we recruit the president of each sorority and one special faculty member to judge the competition. Our male contestants represent groups all over campus: fraternities, athletic teams, and even the marching band!
Each year, the Colorado School of Mines Panhellenic Council and Interfraternity Council get together to plan a week of fun and bonding for all Greek life members on campus! Our members not only attend each event, but help plan and set up events as well! Highlights from last year include the Talent Night and the Crawfish Boil.
Other Sisterhood Events
Whether it's a planned dodgeball tournament or a impromptu Disney movie night, we spend more quality time with each other than anything else. Past events include 'Donut You Love Karaoke?' and '90's Rollerblade Night!' Even studying can be fun with our sisters!
Every year we host a bunch of events in support of our chapter philanthropies. For more information about these specific events check out our Chapter Philanthropy page.
