We would like to take a moment today to congratulate Sigma Kappa on 143 years of sisterhood!
Sigma Kappa was founded on this day, November 9th 1874, by five lovely women. Mary Caffrey Low (first female student admitted), Elizabeth Gorham Hoag, Ida Fuller, Frances Mann and Louise Helen Coburn attended Colby College, in Waterville, Maine. Colby College was the first college in the New England area to allow women too attend on an equal basis with men students.
These women came together and created an organization that over 143 years would lead to more than 123 collegiate chapters of 168,000+ women. To say their ideals of “One Heart, One Way” were met, is an understatement!

Hey, Sigma Kappa Ladies! We have a new design ready for you here at Ollie + Ivy! This design is called Mary Low’s Floral Bouquet!
This design was created with your lovely founder in mind. While researching Mary, we were shocked to learn that she attended Colby College in Maine where she was the FIRST woman to be admitted in 1871! To the left is a photo of Mary & the other four founders of Sigma Kappa.
You can now get this design at Ollie + Ivy printed on a number of items! We love the fun contrast of the graphic background mixed with the feminine floral bouquet. Of course we also included the beautiful Maroon + Lavender colors as well!
