About Us

Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. was founded on November 12, 1922 in Indianapolis, Indiana by seven young educators. The group became an incorporated national collegiate sorority on December 30, 1929 when a charter was granted to the Alpha chapter at Butler University. Sigma Gamma Rho is the only sorority of the NPHC not founded at Howard University, but at a predominantly white university. The organization is devoted to sisterhood, scholarship, and service. The Rho Omega Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho was chartered on the JHU campus on March 15, 2009. Nonetheless, there were SGRhos at JHU in the former Gamma Mu City Wide Chapter chartered in 1968.

Emails/Newsletters

"As someone who didn't really think about joining Greek life prior to college, I came onto campus just developing friendships with inspiring women. I developed relationships with two of the women I now call my sorors. I started attending events and meetings and learning more about the organization and what they stood for such as education, service, and supporting young girls and women. Those were all values I saw in my life and this is one of the best decisions I've ever made since coming to Hopkins."

Danae Baxter

President

"I chose to join SGRho because I saw how the ladies carried themselves on campus, they were all student leaders. I really wanted to be a part of the organization because they were doing great work in all of their communities and they were all about giving back and I really just wanted to be a part of that."

Zainub Balla

Secretary

"I joined SGRho because I wanted to be a part of a community that catered towards giving back and getting involved. I also wanted to a be a part of a collective that held sisterhood at its center. The people in my chapter are really amazing and I felt like I could learn form them and contribute to the greater good."

Tara Desporte

Vice President

"The members of the Rho Omega chapter were women that I looked up to on campus. They were so involved in all of the organizations they were involved in and that reflected in the chapter itself. I knew that if I wanted to be a part of a group of strong Black women the Rho Omega chapter was the place to be. I'm so happy that I made the decision to be a part of an organization that has values which so closely align with my own and which has allowed me to grow as a person and meet women who I know will always have my back and be a part of my life."
