History

Purpose

Sigma Omega Phi Multicultural Sorority, Inc. was founded in April 26, 1990 at California State University, Chico[1] . It was founded as a women's support network for ALL women regardless of their origin. The organization was founded based on a lack of diversity in the community, the founders also saw a lack of options for social organizations. The organization currently consists of a diverse group of women from different cultural backgrounds, religions, and beliefs that have come together to promote Culture, Education, and Unity. There are currently 6 chapters that have all been established in California.


Early Years

Four women came together on April 26, 1990 to establish Sigma Omega Phi on the CSU Chico campus. These four women Leticia Roman, Obdulia Avila, Martina Mendoza and Amelia Rosas were later joined by 11 young women that came together to establish Sigma Omega Phi which was officially recognized by the university on September 16, 1990. The women saw a lack of diversity among their community and a lack of options in sororities that shared their beliefs at the time [2].
