Happy anniversary, Sigma Gamma Rho! Founded on Irvington campus at Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana, this historic African-American sorority is celebrating its first 100 years.

Seven young school teachers had the vision to establish the non-profit organization, which is guided by the three principles of scholarship, service and sisterhood. Over the past 100 years, Sigma Gamma Rho has grown to 500-plus chapters and over 100,000 members, with international chapters located in Bermuda, Canada, South Korea, Dubai, Belize, Ghana, Africa, the Bahamas, Germany and U.S. Virgin Islands.
