Sigma Lambda Alpha kicks off the spring semester today with a bake sale at the downstairs MCL lobby from 8 a.m.-noon serving goodies such as breakfast burritos, cookies, brownies, and other items.
According to TWU’s website, Sigma Lambda Alpha endeavors to promote the Latin Cultures more prominently in our diverse society through community service involvement and academic achievement. The sorority strives for “integrity and high morals, and to be recognized for commitment to [their] sisterhood and [bring] emphasis on academic achievement, community service and leadership development.”
Sigma Lambda Alpha’s Social Chair and Treasurer and junior interdisciplinary studies major Melissa Reyes explained that portions of the profit made from the bake sale will go towards the sorority’s philanthropy, including the Boys and Girls Club, as well as funding various other events that they host around campus.
When asked about other events that Sigma Lambda Alpha plans on putting together, Reyes mentioned having bake sales at least once a month and putting together a showcase for their new sisters.
“We also host other events throughout the semester that are usually in the Purple Lounge and are always free of charge,” she said. “They are usually to promote things like cultural awareness or Greek unity among other things. We stand for community service, academic achievement and culture awareness.”
