About Our Chapter
Sigma Alpha is a professional agricultural sorority existing in many colleges across America. Founded in 1987 at The Ohio State University, five young women wanted an alternative to the social sorority system. They desired a group of women to bond with over their mutual passion of agriculture. Within the organization, there are four pillars our women strive to elevate: scholarship, leadership, fellowship and service.
Since 1987, Sigma Alpha has a sisterhood spanning across the nation to include nearly 100 chapters; including the Alpha Omega Chapter at Kansas State University. Together, we are steadily learning and growing together in agriculture.
Here at the Alpha Omega Chapter, we play our part in the Kansas agriculture community. While each of our members are spread across the country due to COVID-19, each sister continues to lend a hand so that we may strengthen the agricultural industry.

Cultivating professional women in agriculture
Sigma Alpha’s national philanthropy is our very own Agriculture in the Community. Agriculture in the Community is a philanthropy that allows members to give back and pay it forward by sharing the word of agriculture.
