The College of New Jersey
Established on April 3, 2016 six distinguished ladies came together to establish Sigma Sigma Rho at The College of New Jersey. At TCNJ, Pooja Shah, Maaha Malik, Rutu Patel, Mounica Neravetla, Manasa Dondapati, and Thamara Thayalan worked hard to be recognized as the first South Asian Interest Sorority on campus on the Unified Greek Council. In just one short year they have managed to double in size having crossed 13 sisters within 3 classes. The Sisters at TCNJ constantly visit and support other schools in the area including helping to host Fall Northern Regional Formal with Rutgers University during September 2017 and strolling as a part of New York Institute of Technology’s Stroll for a Cause during Spring 2017. They also show a strong sense of National Sisterhood and care having created instructional stroll videos for other chapters and colonies, and serve as role models not only internally but also nationally.
Sigma Sigma Rho was established to foster the ideals of Sisterhood, Society, and Remembrance amongst its members. This past summer, TCNJ won the award for “Colony that Represents Remembrance” as as well as the President of the Year award given to Manasa Dondapati, Sister Incarcerate. TCNJ continues to uphold our principles of Sisterhood, Society, and Remembrance while developing leaders from distinguished ladies and we are excited to see what the future holds for this amazing Colony.
