Sigma Psi Zeta
Sigma Psi Zeta Sorority, Inc. (SYZ) is a cultural, social, educational, and community service oriented sorority. SYZ is the first Greek-lettered sorority of its kind to be established on the East Coast and is one of the largest and most distinguished Asian-interest sororities in the nation.
Sigma Psi Zeta was founded on March 23, 1994 and incorporated on March 15, 1996. We are recognized under the laws of the State of New York, and currently have sisterships in New York, Massachusetts, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, California, Washington D.C., Washington, Colorodo, Conneticut, and Illinois.
The fundamental goal of Sigma Psi Zeta Sorority is to promote awareness of the myriad Asian/Asian American cultures. Our sorority addresses this issue through leadership, outreach, individual, community interaction, and most importantly, the bonds of sisterhood. The sorority also promotes development among its members, the students and the faculty at each of the campuses we represent.
In order to achieve this goal, we partake in political, social, educational, and cultural activities. Each effort improves our environment, and instills within our sisters experiences that will follow them long after they’ve graduated. Through a network of like-minded yet highly individualistic women, the sorority lends structure and support to sorors that share this Sigma vision. We believe the strength of our foundation derives from the unity of sisterhood, one that was proudly established over ten years ago.
In addition, we work in collaboration with other Greek and non-Greek organizations to provide services for the local communities and the community at large. It is through our various participations in these cultural events, educational workshops, and philanthropic support that we make a difference. Nationally, regionally and individually, we strive to embody the ideals of Sigma Psi Zeta.
