The Sigma Kappa chapter house at Oregon State provides a safe and nurturing home away from home where our collegiate members can build friendships and make memories. Our Sigma Kappa chapter was chartered at OSU in 1918 and for the last 97 years we have strived to live our values of personal growth, friendship, service, and loyalty.
It is our sincerest hope that our members have a positive and meaningful experience while living in the chapter house. Whether that means stocking favorite snacks during finals week or purchasing special lamps with outlets so members can charge their phones while sitting on the couch, we attempt to always be aware of what our members need and want.
With the support of Sigma Kappa’s National Housing Corporation we have moved forward in planning for some upgrades over the next few years that would build the morale of the actives, make the chapter competitive for recruitment, and help preserve the dignity and beauty of our college home. After decades of taking a “bandaid” approach to repairs and improvement, we have launched a 4-phase remodel/redecorate program. Phase I includes the Entry, Sunroom (or Lanai) where the women study, and the Rec Room where they like to hang out. The second phase included a full electrical upgrade as well as a complete renovation of the exterior of the house. For the third phase that will hopefully take place next summer, we hope to give the second and third floor study rooms a well deserved facelift. Throughout this process we have had the privilege of working with our designer, Deb Kadas, as well as Christianson Construction.
