About Us

Although Sigma Omega Nu is still a fairly small sorority, it is an ever expanding one. Size isn't everything, and we much prefer quality over quantity. Our chapters currently span across three states, California, Colorado, and Nevada. If you are interested in helping Sigma Omega Nu expand, please see our Membership page for information.

We hope to one day see chapters all across the country. Our chapters are made up of women from diverse backgrounds and many nationalities in Latin America, Europe, Africa, and Asia.

Currently, Sigma Omega Nu has over 1,300 members and is constantly growing.

History

Sigma Omega Nu was founded on November 6, 1996. It was the first Latina interest sorority founded and established at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.

At the time, no group existed specifically for the academic, cultural or family support of

Latina women pursuing higher education.

The eight Latina women who founded the sorority felt that there was a need for a strong Latina voice on their campus so they created an organization that would fulfill that unmet need.

Since then, Sigma Omega Nu's commitment to academic and family support has spread throughout California, Nevada and Colorado. Today, Sigma Omega Nu's membership is made up of diverse women from all ethnic, cultural, religious, political and lifestyle backgrounds.
