Alpha Kappa Alpha

On Nov. 15, 1901, a new sorority was organized and named Alpha Sigma Alpha. The State Female Normal School, now Longwood University, in Farmville, VA, was the first institution of higher learning in Virginia to admit women for collegiate study. Naturally, it attracted superior students, many of them daughters of college professors already familiar with the fraternity idea.

Alpha Sigma Alpha promotes high ideals and standards for its members throughout their lives by emphasizing balance among our four aims of intellectual, physical, social and spiritual development. Alpha Sigma Alpha provides opportunities through:

  • Sisterhood - forming strong bonds of unconditional friendship based on common values and experiences;
  • Heritage - expressed through creed, ritual and history; and
  • Leadership and Service - enhanced by chapter, campus and community involvement.
