My favorite part about being in Residence Life is the combination of education and ministry. I love the opportunities that arise from working with and living alongside students — it's a special place to be!
Built in 1977, Sigma is part of 'upper campus,' which also includes Sigma, Horton Hall, and Blackstone Hall. Sigma shares a gorgeous new courtyard with the new Blackstone Hall, and is steps away from the Blackstone Dining Facility! Sigma is staffed by Resident Director Chris Lee and his team of 8 RAs.
Sigma is distinctive in that it has suite-style rooms; instead of large, common bathrooms, each two-bedroom suite has its own bathroom, and each room has an in-room sink/vanity; this provides both additional privacy and the additional responsibility of keeping the bath clean. There is a large lounge, with attached kitchen, on each level, and each level also has its own laundry room. Sigma is co-ed, with male and female students living in separate sections of the building, while sharing the lounges, kitchens, and laundry facilities.
Sigma Hall's doors are secured by an electronic access system, so only students can access the building during the day, and only residents may enter the building at night. Each individual room is key-locked for student security. Security cameras in outside and common areas are monitored 24 hours per day, and Campus Safety patrols campus regularly to ensure student security at all times.
Each room differs slightly, so your room may look different. There are many other ways to personalize the layout of your room from these samples.
I lived in Sigma for two years and loved every minute of it. The dorm is unique because of its small size that creates a sense of close community, and the lobbies are conveniently placed on every floor which makes hanging out easy. I met my best friends and created the best memories in Sigma, from hours of card games and movie nights, to spontaneous donut runs or road trips. Sigma was an incredible place; it will always be home, even when it's not.
Togo March: During the first week of classes, all Sigma students are invited on an epic campus march to show Sigma pride. Students traditionally fashion togas to wear on this march, and some carry shields or signs to add dramatic effect.
