Gamma Sigma Sigma interest group comes to Tarleton
A Gamma Sigma Sigma National Service Sorority interest group is one of the most recent additions to Tarleton’s campus.
Majesty Williams decided to start the interest group at Tarleton because the sorority stuck out in her mind.
“I heard about Gamma Sigma Sigma through my previous institution. It’s always something that I have been interested in. The goals of service friendship and equality always stuck out for me,” she said.
The organization’s website says, “An interest group (IG) is confirmed on a group of individuals who are seeking to formally colonize with Gamma Sigma Sigma National Service Sorority. This status allows for interest groups to hold the necessary interest meetings and perform service projects under the sorority name. Interest groups have a specific time period to work under this status to formally petition for colony/reactivating chapter status with the sorority.”
“It’s a group of people interested in bringing back the GSS legacy,” Williams added.
Gamma Gamma Sima has been on campus before.
“The organization was founded at Tarleton in 1967 during the summer and has enjoyed a close partnership with the Xi Omicron chapter of Alpha Phi Omega. Gamma Sigma Sigma is a non-exclusive service sorority dedicated to forming the strongest of bonds. They can be seen doing community service on both the local and national levels,” Williams said.
According to the Gamma Sigma Sigma’s website, “Gamma Sigma Sigma commits to creating and engaging in opportunities to serve on campuses and in the community to address local, national, and global needs.”
Their values are unity, leadership, diversity, partnership, and compassion.
The sorority has partnered with different philanthropic groups, like MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), American Cancer Society and Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
