Basileus Message

Welcome to  Beta Nu Sigma Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc 2022-2023 program year. Since our founding on November 12,1922 in Indianapolis, Indiana at Butler University by seven black school teachers, the sorority continues to be steadfastly committed to the tenets of excellence in Scholarship, Sisterhood, and Service. For more than eight decades, the dynamic women of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. have built and sustained a well-known and respected reputation for not only leading positive change but more importantly, inspiring others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more.


On June 24, 1950 the Beautiful Beta Nu Sigma Chapter was chartered and is comprised of women from every profession who are dedicated and sensitive in identifying the needs of the community in which we serve. We strive to set an example of excellent service, and through service we hope to make a lasting impact on the lives of those we encounter in San Diego County. Following in the footsteps of our Founders, we are guided by our National motto “Greater Service, Greater Progress”.
