National Rituals Week

Sigma Kappa Sorority 

I am a proud member of the Sigma Kappa Greek Sorority here at Missouri State University.

This sisterhood means the world to me and I couldn’t be more proud of all the amazing women that make up our Delta Upsilon Chapter.

This blog post is for them, the Greek society and for anyone who shares and believes in the following values.

Happy National Rituals Week!!


Please start off the week simply:

  • Act with love in all we think, say and do.
  • Be elder sisters and set a good example.
  • Cherish and hold lovingly in your heart our Sorority, our friendship, our sisterhood.
  • Do the best you can with what you have. You are enough just as you are. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone else…or even yourself.
  • Founders Rule. If our founders were there to see you, would she be proud? Do the right thing.
  • Guidelines. At all times. Even as alumnae we need to remember that we have pledged to follow the guidelines. It certainly doesn’t mean we like them or even that we agree with them, just that we will follow them. If we don’t like them, we can work to help change them.
  • Look inward first. Ed King, in Secret Thoughts of a Ritual said, “Because I am a system of values I am therefore an instrument of self-evaluation.”
  • Love all our sisters. “We are not in a sorority to decide whom we can like; one of the things we are here for is to love the friends of our friends. If a candidate is dear to a sister that fact should make us desire her if we can. If it does not the fault may be in us, not in her.” (Stella Perry, 1913)
  • Remember that we have two ears to listen and one mouth to speak. We don’t always have to be the one with the answers. Sometimes, those who speak least are deemed wisest.
  • Serve with humility, which isn’t the same as martyrdom (exaggerated suffering).
  • Stand up for yourself. People can’t walk over you like a welcome mat unless you lie down.
  • Use the values and teachings from our Ritual in all your personal relationships to help understand others and be more productive.
  • Treat others the way you want to be treated and treat yourself the way your Sigma Kappa sisters would treat you.
