Lambda Sigma Gamma Sorority, Inc.
Message From Our President
Hi, my name is Diana Garcia and I am the ZETA Chapter President of Lambda Sigma Gamma Sorority, Inc. What initially drew me to LSG were the connections I made with sisters. I could see how supporting they were of one another and how much they did for the community and I wanted to be a part of that. Navigating through college as a first generation student could be very difficult and isolating, but ever since joining, I have found a home away from home with a group of women who I know will always have my back. I now have hundreds of sisters who I know are there for me and could turn to for professional and academic advice. Joining this sisterhood has not only made me a better leader but a better person as well. My sisters have taught me compassion and patience and have empowered me to be brave and to live my life unapologetically.
My favorite thing about my sisterhood is how close we hold our pillar of multiculturalism. As sisters, we have come together from different creeds, ethnic groups, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our physical talents and mental abilities vary, but it is within these differences that we choose to live our lives and share our dreams in hopes of educating one another and bettering ourselves. We strive to bring women together from diverse backgrounds under the spirit of Multiculturalism for LSG.
Lambda Sigma Gamma Sorority, Inc. was founded in 1986 by 27 Multicultural Women at California State University, Sacramento. Our Founder wanted to create a space for women of color to thrive on university campuses. LSG is a Multicultural Sorority that believes in Beauty Through Diversity and Unity Through Sisterhood. It is through the acceptance and understanding of other cultures, interests, and lifestyles that LSG remains strong and united. Since then, LSG has expanded to 26 chapters throughout the West Coast.
Our Zeta Chapter was founded on November 10, 1991 at the UCSB. Lambda Sigma Gamma is the first Multicultural sorority at UCSB with an emphasis on academic excellence, community involvement, professional and social development. We are a network of women in higher education seeking to empower and make life more supportive for women of all backgrounds. Unity within our sorority is enhanced by retreats, activities, community service and meetings within each individual chapter, as well as throughout the state.
Our official National Philanthropy is the Head Start Program where we are committed to bringing awareness and support to early childhood education. Head Start programs promote school readiness of children ages birth to five from low-income families by supporting the development of the whole child. We get involved by volunteering in elementary school classrooms throughout our community and participate in annual book, toy and food drives throughout the year to donate school supplies and provide food to those in need during the holidays. The recipients vary from shelters, children's hospitals, head start families and other low-income families in the area.
