Our Mission

Beta Sigma Alpha, Sororidad Latina, Inc. serves as a positive force in the lives of young Latinas pursuing higher education by providing guidance and support.


Trust, camaraderie and dependability are the foundation upon which the sisters empower each other and strengthen the Latino community.

Our History

Founded in 1991 in response to the growing interest in Greek-lettered organizations that addressed the needs of Latinas at the University of Connecticut, Beta Sigma Alpha was the first Latina sorority in Connecticut. Membership in Beta Sigma Alpha grew to include undergraduate students from the University of Bridgeport, Iona College and St. Leo University.


Beta Sigma Alpha Today

Today, the sisters of Beta Sigma Alpha reside in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and Puerto Rico. They have incorporated the values of the sorority into their lives. They have gone on to serve the Latino community in the areas of education, philanthropy, youth development and health awareness.
