Sigma Delta Tau was founded on March 25, 1917 at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and has grown to include more than 90 college campuses across the United States and Canada. The Eta chapter was chartered at the University of Georgia on April 6, 1924. The mission of Sigma Delta Tau is to enrich the college experience of women of similar ideals, to build lasting friendships, and to foster personal growth.
On campus, Sig Delts are involved in many activities. SDT sisters hold leadership positions on the executive boards of Relay for Life, UGA Miracle, Habitat for Humanity, and Student Merchanidizing Association. Many sisters are involved in SGA, HEROs, Match Mates, Greek Emerging Leaders Resource Team, Advertising Club, and various honor societies. The Eta chapter has a strong work ethic and repeatedly holds one of the highest chapter grade point averages. Sig Delts also have active roles in UGA athletics such as Women’s Basketball, Club Soccer, Swim Club, Club Lacrosse, Club Tennis, Club Volleyball, and UGA Flagline.
In addition to campus activities, Sigma Delta Tau contributes to multiple philanthropies. Each year, the Eta chapter looks forward to its signature event, SDT Greek Grind, the largest Greek philanthropy on campus. This highly anticipated event is a dance competition among all Panhellenic sororities on campus that raises money for Prevent Child Abuse America. Each year we take this event to a new level, expanding to a larger audience and raising more money for this great cause. Sig Delt sisters also host a Spring Philanthropy called Eat Your Heart Out: Battle of the Chefs. This event is a sorority-wide dessert competition among all of the house chefs. The Eta chapter shares a close sisterhood and takes pride in its academic, social, and philanthropic endeavors.
