East Tennessee State University Colony
Our journey began in Fall of 2016, when a group of young women decided that the East Tennessee State University was in need of, not a new sorority, but a Sisterhood unlike any other. This was only possible with the formation of an Interest Group. Thus, the quest to find women who also believed in creating and starting a new Sisterhood at East Tennessee State University began, and as this was going on so did the quest for a Sorority that fit who we were as young women. After immense amounts of research, Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority Inc.captured all of our hearts. They possess so much more than we wanted in a Sorority: Sisterhood, Society, and Remembrance, it became obvious which sorority we wanted to become part of. We knew that this was the organization that we wanted to become part of, and we knew that we could truly create change on our campus. Word spread that girls wanted to form an Interest Group for Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority Inc. Girls of all ages, places, and social circles came together to become part of the interest group.
FIVE Distinguished women came together to establish the A.L.P.H.A Alphekka Class of Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority Inc. at the ETSU:
Ms. Tara Corwell, Sister Ceánńaire
Ms. Rima Patel, Sister Axon
Ms. Pooja Patel, Sister Xenon
Ms. Nikki Chaudhari, Sister Äscellâ
Ms. Tulsi Amin, Sister Raé
Ms. Dhara Patel, Sister Endurance
ETSU’s aim is to exemplify the principles Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority Inc. on campus. Not only do we plan on leaving a legacy and making a change on campus, but we aim to create a Sisterhood unlike any other. We are an organization that provides professionalism, networking, academic excellence, and most importantly a life-long bond. As young women in today’s society we are committed to Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention within the community of Johnson City, Tennessee. Being students at one of the top schools in the nation, we have brought an organization to East Tennessee State University that promotes professionalism and leadership while having a family away from home.
The ETSU Colony has created a positive atmosphere so that Sisters of Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority Inc. will graduate as positive young women. We are honored and blessed to become part of an incredibly beautiful Sisterhood and we cannot wait to share our passion.
Congratulations to Rachel Sydow, Distinguished Sister Prodigal, and PM for the Alpha Class for the tremendous amount of work and leadership you’ve instilled in our East Tennessee State University Sisters.

Sisterhood is what we work for. Society is whom we give to. Remembrance is what lies in our hearts. In Spring 2017, Nine Distinguished Ladies at Mercer University came together and exemplified passion, leadership, and strength. At the time no one really knew each other but we all knew one thing: Not only did we want to be part of this organization, but we wanted to create change on campus and leave our legacy behind. As our love for both the organization and each other grew, our vision became clearer.
Kanishka Patel, Distinguished Sister InterΣect, spearheaded the idea of starting a colony of Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority Inc. at Mercer University. The Mercer University Alpha Anarchy Line’s vision is to represent Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority Inc.’s mission. They strive to be a professional organization providing its members with networking opportunities (within Sigma Sigma Rho national network), academic resources, and a life-long support system. As a non-profit organization, they are committed to Domestic Violence awareness and prevention and working within Detroit. As individuals, they hold themselves as advocates for the empowerment of South Asian women.
We feel so privileged to be part of such a strong, passionate sisterhood. Mercer University colony hopes to not only to instill leadership skills but also create a family on campus. As we strive academically, at one of the top universities in the nation, we hold ourselves to the principles of Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority Inc.
