Sigma Pi Chapter
DC Metropolitan Chapter
On October 14, 1998, the Sigma Pi Chapter was chartered on the campus of American University. Sigma Pi is embodied as a District of Columbia (DC) Metropolitan Chapter. Therefore, the chapter welcomes students from universities other than American University that do not have a chapter chartered at their campus. In 2002, Sigma Pi welcomed its first Trinity Washington University student. In 2007, Sigma Pi welcomed its first Georgetown University student. In 2018, Sigma Pi welcomed its first Catholic University of America student.
Sigma Pi has received countless awards since its inception that recognize service, scholarship, and excellent leadership. The chapter annually averages 10 awards per year. Since 2015, Sigma Pi has consecutively won the DC State Five Pearls Chapter Excellence Award and since 2018, Sigma Pi has consecutively won American University's Fraternity & Sorority Life’s Outstanding Organization of the Year. Individual chapter members have won the DC State Undergraduate of the Year, the DC State Undergraduate with the Highest GPA, the Beta Zeta Chapter Sigma Pi Soror of the Year, and American University’s Outstanding Chapter Member awards.
Programmatically, Sigma Pi hosts Zeta Weeks of organized events composed of educational and community service projects as well as occasional fundraisers. Some signature programs include Girl Code, Game Night, Financial Literacy, and A So Sweet Mixer. Since 2017, Sigma Pi has annually hosted a Senior Sendoff in the month of March to commemorate the sorority’s Finer Womanhood Observance.
Sigma Pi is a strong testament to the noteworthiness in deeds, actions, and remarks that can occur in an undergraduate chapter in only just 20 years.
