|About||Sigma Psi Zeta Sorority, Inc. is the first Asian-Interest sorority established on the East Coast. Founded on March 23, 1994 at the University at Albany.|
Our Vision is to become an international organization uniting the sisters to follow the code of loyalty, allegiance, and dedication.
Our Mission is to promote unity among women and the awareness of the Asian/Asian-American culture and heritage.
Our Goal is to best demonstrate sisterhood and allegiance by merging all efforts and interests to provide an invaluable experience for the sisters and services to the local communities and the community at large.
In the Fall semester of 1993, a group of young undergraduate women first came together. These women, hailing from different cultural backgrounds, became close friends. While musing about the state of their campus and their friendships, the idea of forming a sorority casually came up. They believed that a sorority built on their friendships and sharing their vision could address a gap that existed on the SUNY Albany campus. This idea slowly solidified in their minds; these women believed that a sorority built on their friendships, laughter, strengths and dedication would be a formidable force. Over the course of the semester, their group of friends grew closer and in size.
On March 23rd, 1994, the State University of New York at Albany formally recognized the sisterhood of Sigma Psi Zeta. This signified the birth of many firsts. Our Alpha Chapter was established on that date, as well as the birth of the First East Coast-based Asian sorority. The founding mothers struggled to establish our organization, our purpose, and most importantly, a precedence by fighting the odds.
Sigma Psi Zeta has since grown to embody the beliefs of our Founding Mothers. We have become a sorority celebrating our cultural experiences. The multicultural activities in which we participate increase our awareness of the multitude of cultures that have contributed to our history. Our philanthropic activities in which we engage increase our understanding of the timeless struggles that were faced by minority women everywhere. Today, we have expanded to 13 chapters, 15 charters and 4 colonies, and are still going strong.
