Cultivating Professional Women in Agriculture
Sigma Alpha is a professional agricultural sorority that promotes scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship among its members. The sorority was founded in 1978 at the Ohio State University by five women who wanted an alternative to the social Greek sorority system.
Since that time, Sigma Alpha has become a national organization consisting of more than 80 chapters, comprised of undergraduate and alumni members. Today, more than 9,900 members have been initiated into Sigma Alpha Sorority. We're growing steadily as others in agriculture learn about us.

Oregon State University is home to the Xi Chapter of Sigma Alpha. Our chapter was founded on October 5, 1991. Today, the Xi Chapter includes twenty-five members and continues to grow during each recruitment term. Membership in Sigma Alpha goes beyond belonging to a professional organization. The ladies of Sigma Alpha offer tremendous support to one another and believe in the commitment they have made to their sisters.
Our national philanthropy is Ag in the Classroom. The goal of this philanthropy is to educate school-age children about agriculture and how it affects them in everyday life. We host an annual 5k, Hoofing it for Agriculture, in which we provide support for this cause.
