I chose to pledge for Sigma because I wanted to explore and go beyond more than just being an academic student at Geneseo.  I’m involved with other activities but I saw something in Sigma that is definitely different from any other organization I have seen on campus.  I saw unity and a lot of support among the Sigma ladies and that’s what really attracted me to these strong, independent women!

Met so many people from all over the country and really learned a lot about the career in Dentistry.
