Hello! We are the Tau Chapter of Sigma Psi Zeta at the University of Maryland, College Park. Our organization consists of many unique, strong, and passionate women who strive to better themselves, each other, and the different communities they are a part of.

As I spend more time in Sigma, the sisters and the organization as a whole have become very important to me. I’ve gained countless sisters that I can always depend on, and I continue to grow personally and professionally as I take on more roles. During my first semester of freshmen year, I knew I wanted to submerge myself in all of the opportunities and experiences UMD offers. Despite joining multiple student clubs that I was interested in being a part of, I felt like I hadn’t found “the one”. There wasn’t an organization that I was extremely passionate about, made close friends in, and felt like I truly belonged.


Second semester, I found a group of hardworking, kindhearted, and lovable women. The more I talked and got to know them, I knew I wanted to be a part of such a welcoming and motivated community. Every sister has a different personality, different interests, and different identities. Yet, when we all come together, we become a strong family fueled with respect, love, and constant support. I really admire these women, because we are able to push one another to a higher potential than we could ever dream of.

Our dedication to bettering our community at UMD is what I respect most about Sigma. We hope to be more in touch with our Asian American identities while celebrating other cultures, and we also strive to promote awareness about the realities of domestic violence/sexual assault. Through my experiences and opportunities in Sigma so far, I know I’ve found “the one”, and I’m excited to continue our work on campus.

I am grateful for how much Sigma has influenced my undergraduate years so far and I cannot wait to see more opportunities it will give me. I love all my sisters and I love all the laughter and joy they bring to my day. I’m proud to be part of the family.Feel free to browse our website to learn more about our purpose and beliefs, as well as each sister that creates this loving community!

With love,
