IONA

Phi Sigma Sigma Sorority


Mission and Purpose:

Phi Sigma Sigma was founded by 10 extraordinary women on November 26, 1913, at Hunter College in New York City. The Delta Nu Chapter was founded locally on April 13, 1985. Now, we are the largest sorority on Iona’s campus, and we couldn’t be any prouder of our growth! Our ideals are sisterhood, service, scholarship and diversity. The sisters follow these ideals both in the Iona community and nationwide. It is because of our dedication to the sorority that Phi Sigma Sigma is able to grow locally, as well as nationally. Being the only national sorority on Iona’s campus gives us the benefit of having a larger community and every sister being apart of something bigger than themself and bigger than Iona College.
 
Every year, six of our Executive Board members attend a Leadership Conference (LC) in Virginia (just a few miles away from Washington, D.C.) to learn how to perfect the sorority and maintain outstanding leadership in every respective chapter. The conferences – which are also attended by chapter advisors, other alumnae volunteers and Headquarters staff – illustrate Phi Sigma Sigma’s continuing commitment to strengthening the Fraternity by offering even more personal-development opportunities to sisters of every age. The LCs are designed to bring together leaders from a variety of chapters for specialized programming and training. LCs also provide the opportunity to network with peers, meet Headquarters staff and international officers including Supreme Council sisters and Foundation directors.
