Message From Our President

My name is Lupe Solis and I am the president of the EnvieD Epsilon Delta chapter of Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority Inc. for the 2020-2021 academic year. Throughout the school year we host events that revolve around our five principles of Academics, Community Service, Cultural Awareness, Morals & Ethics and Social Interaction. Our organization strives towards implementing those principles into everything that we do within the sisterhood and our individual lives. 

I chose SLG not because of how similar each sister is, but how different they are from one another. A Gamma comes in all shapes, colors, sizes, and ethnicities and I appreciated that this organization holds an inclusive space for all different kinds of womxn. It allows them to grow professionally and personally, while teaching the value of finding balance. We pride ourselves in being womxn of balance.

History

Sigma Lambda Gamma was founded in 1990 at the University of Iowa, Iowa City Iowa and was established here at UCSB in 2010! Our colors are Shocking Pink and Majestic Purple. Our mascot is a purple panther. Today, we have 114 womxn of distinction in our chapter. SLG represents over 113 ethnicities and cultures and we have 100+ chapters across the nation from coast to coast. We also branch out from the Divine 9, which are the first 9 historically Black sororities and fraternities on college campuses and because of that we do have the Divine Right to step and stroll.

Philanthropy 

Our philanthropies are TRiO and Breast Cancer Awareness. In order to support and give back to both philanthropies, we implement a balance within our events. TRiO is an outreach program that is aimed at providing resources for high school students that come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Although there isn’t an official TRiO program in the Santa Barbara area, every year we fundraise money through events and raffles to award a scholarship to a young woman in high school. We support Breast Cancer Awareness and each year we host our annual “Pink Week” dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness where we host educational and awareness workshops, tabling, and fundraisers. This past year we raised and donated over $400 for the Santa Barbara Breast Cancer Resource Center with our Pie-A-Gamma Fundraiser! We also hold partnerships with the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross. SLG participates in Go Red For Women’s annual National Wear Red Day and successfully hosts their heart awareness social media campaign #GammasGoRed to spread awareness of heart disease among women nationwide.
