We are not known as Sigmas in NPHC._ We go by S-G-Rhos or just simply Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated. It's too confusing with Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc (NPHC) who are known in our circle as the "Sigmas"

Having problems with computer--

Adding that (NPC) Phi Sigma Sigma also shares our Rhoyal Blue and Gold but what I understand is theirs is King Blue and Gold.

Thanks, both of you. Interesting that they both specify yellow chrysanthemum. We don't specify the color.

Of course, I should have thought to check ariesrising website -- it is amazing.

That is correct. Our official colors are King Blue and Gold... But we mostly use royal blue (sometimes navy) since king blue is hard to find.

Hey, no harm, no foul.
Sometimes on a local level, we have chapters that may still use "Sigma" but it's been encouraged not to do that for the reason previously stated. Again, it's just too confusing.

Though we are not a recognized triad, the City College of New York is the founding place of Delta Sigma Phi, Zeta Beta Tau and Sigma Alpha Mu
