For Parents

Welcome to the Family

Welcome to the Sigma Alpha Family!  For the past two decades or so you’ve been the primary influence in your daughter’s life. You’ve pursued her best interests. The lessons that she learned from you will anchor her as she interacts with new friends, professors, and mentors at college.  At the most basic level, Sigma Alpha offers your daughter a smaller group of friends amid a larger university environment – fellow students that your daughter can bond with and share experiences with. But the benefits of Sigma Alpha are quite far-reaching. As a Sigma Alpha member, your daughter will:

Grow as a Leader in Agriculture

Sigma Alpha offers each member endless opportunities to grow as a leader and woman in agriculture. Your daughter will have the opportunity to discover her talents, perfect her abilities, and develop her skills that will help her gain confidence and be her best self. For example, we offer trainings through Bayer Crop Science to our chapters on building their “Agvocacy” skills – with this program members are able to inform growers and customers about the public perception challenges facing the agricultural industry and they are able to improve communication behaviors when it comes to advocating for modern agriculture.

Develop Leadership Skills

We are a professional sorority and as such, Sigma Alpha provides many leadership opportunities to our members to enhance and improve their leadership skills. Whether your daughter serves as an executive committee member within her chapter or she represents her chapter at our annual National Convention, we’ll provide her with resources she needs to thrive. One of our member benefits is scholarships provided by the Sigma Alpha Educational Foundation that help encourage our members to participate in our national and regional events, host a professional development events, or award them for their outstanding contributions to the sorority.
