History of the
Lambda Alpha Chapter
The history of Texas A&M University's Lambda Alpha chapter of Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. began in the spring of 1997. It began with the dreams of three dedicated Latina women: Jessica Hickey, Erica De La Garza, and Rozanne Garza.
These three women aspired to bring a second Latina based sorority to Texas A&M, specifically one that emphasized sisterhood and the importance of higher education for women. They started an organization formerly known as the Sisters for Cultural Awareness, which promoted culture throughout the A&M campus, along with service and sisterhood.
For the next year they worked towards becoming a colony of Sigma Lambda Gamma. On July 23, 1998 the Lambda Alpha chapter was founded at Texas A&M.
After more than 21 years of distinction, the Lambda Alpha chapter continues to grow. We have initiated 196 sisters and are proud to be part of the fastest growing sorority in the nation.
