Parent FAQ

Why join Sigma Kappa?

Sigma Kappa at the University of Florida is a strong, caring community where your daughter will be provided lifelong opportunities and support for social, intellectual and spiritual development. We strive to live by the core values of Sigma Kappa: personal growth, friendship, service, and loyalty.

Will joining Sigma Kappa take away from my daughter's college education?

While Sigma Kappa is a social organization, we place a high value on scholarship, service, and spiritual development. Skills she will learn through recruitment, in combination with her access to our extensive alumnae network, will benefit her well beyond college. 

What are the financial obligations of joining a sorority?

Our dues include everything except for additional t-shirts which are optional to purchase. All socials, sisterhood events, and sorority activities are included in dues. During recruitment, potential new members will receive detailed information regarding dues. You can also find more information here. Any additional finance-related questions can be directed to our Vice President of Finance Jenna DeMott, via email at betatauvpf@gmail.com.

Can you tell me more about your house?

Our house was just rebuilt and opened in 2016. Your daughter will have the opportunity to live in-house during her collegiate years. Currently, our house is mainly filled with sophomores, and living in-house is a great stepping stone from living in a dorm to an apartment. Our home features dorm-style living on the second floor and suite-style bedrooms on the third floor. A total of 66 sisters are able to live in-house each semester. We have a study room and TV room on each floor, and in-house sisters have access to the kitchenettes on their respective floors. You can take a look at our beautiful house here. Any additional house-related question can be directed to our House Manager via email.

How do meals work? Do I need to buy a university meal plan?

Our chapter utilizes College Fresh, which offers meal plans that are customized, fresh, and planned and prepared by professional chefs. This program includes an application that allows members to view the weekly menu and request late-plates and bagged lunches. Our chef always handles food allergies and dietary issues with care. Meals are included in chapter dues. In-house sisters receive 15 meals each week (breakfast, lunch, dinner), and out-of-house sisters receive 10 meals each week (lunch, dinner).
