Alpha Sigma Alpha History

Alpha Sig was founded at the Female Normal School in Farmville, Virginia on November 15, 1901. Alpha Sig's founders were five women who had become very close friends during their time at the university. Each founder actually received invitations to the other sororities on campus, but they decided to create their own! Alpha Sigma Alpha stated in its original charter, "The purpose of the association shall be to cultivate friendship among its members, and in every way to create pure and elevating sentiments, to perform such deeds and to mold such opinions as will tend to elevate and ennoble womanhood in the world.”

Alpha Sigma Alpha celebrates it's Founder's Day on November 15th!
