On April 5th, La Jolla Alumnae Chapter Members (and their pooches) got together for another lovely hike at Lake Calaveras in Carlsbad. The weather and the views were just perfect for this hike with sisters.
Check out the calendar for upcoming events... we would love to see you out! If you have any suggestions or ideas for events, please let us know!
The La Jolla Alumnae Chapter joined with the Zeta Mu collegiate chapter at UCSD on February 10th for a Valentine themed sisterhood event. The collegiate chapter brought some delicious heart-shaped goodies for everyone to get their sweet tooth fix. The event kicked off with a rowdy trivia challenge that tested our Sigma Kappa knowledge. Melissa's team took first place. Then our alumnae panel took rounds of questions from the Zeta Mu women. They loved hearing stories from our collegiate experiences and advice for life as an alumna. A BIG thank you to the VPAR, Melinda, for organizing the event. And thank you to all the fabulous alumnae who attended. Our strong bond with our sister collegiate chapter is proof that Sigma Kappa is for a lifetime.
Our annual holiday party was a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season. We joined the Zeta Mu chapter for an evening of baked goodies, delightful conversation and a rowdy ornament exchange. The bake-off brought some delicious treats that were all so good I'm certain it was difficult to choose a winner. We met some new friends, shared stories with the collegiate members and caught up with old friends. The ornament exchange was spirited, as usual, with lots of "stealing" going on but eveyone went home with a lovely ornament as a memento. Thank you to Karina for hosting the event at her home and thank you to the Zeta Mu Vice President of Alumnae Relations, Asha, for planning the evening. We hope to see everyone again at our events in 2013.
Alzheimer's disease is the sixth –leading cause of death in the United States and the only one of the top ten leading causes of death without a way to prevent, cure or even slow it’s progression. The disease not only affects the estimated 5.4 million Americans with the diagnosis but countless loved ones. We hope you will join us in raising awareness by signing up for our Walk to End Alzheimer’s team or making a donation towards our team. Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by this devastating disease.

We kicked off the summer with a fabulous happy hour at Wisknladle in La Jolla. It was great to see old friends and some new faces, including a couple of our recent grads from Zeta Mu! Welcome Kristie and Kristina! We were even fortunate enough to get a special appearance from sweet Carol who was a founding member of the Gamma Kappa Chapter! It was the perfect evening for a few drinks, delicious tapas and plenty of girl chat. Can't wait to see you all at the next event!
Saturday we enjoyed a lovely brunch with our fourth year collegiate members from the Zeta Mu Chapter. We wanted to thank them for their dedication to Zeta Mu and welcome them to alumnae life. These young women are a bright and talented group. Many of them are going on to persue graduate degrees. Some will be staying in the San Diego area and we are fortunate to have them join our alumnae chapter. Snaps to Karina for oranizing the event and to Bianca for putting together our fun ice-breaker game.
Our graduating Zeta Mu women will be going through the Order of Triangle ceremony on Tuesday May 29. We would love to have you don your white dress and join us in officially welcoming them to the next phase of sisterhood. For more information on time and location, send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Spring is here and La Jolla Alumnae Chapter members have been busy serving the community and supporting the Zeta Mu Chapter. We finished April with our kids craft booth at The Oceanside Green Fair. Not only did we collect school supplies for local schools and teach children about water conservation, we got to show off our new banner.
A special thank you to Nancy for connecting us with this great community event and thank you to Jessica for organizing volunteers. Of course we can not forget to thank all of the wonderful chapter members who volunteered their time to help with the booth. You are all awesome!
On May 5, Sigma Kappa alumnae joined with Zeta Mu for our spring tea. This annual event was held at Tea Upon Chatsworth with collegiate and alumnae members enjoying a lovely morning of sisterhood bonding. Just look at these beauties!
La Jolla Executive Council members attended the Zeta Mu informal meeting on May 7 to present a program on dressing for interview success. The presentation instructed Zeta Mu members on the dos and don'ts of proper interview attire and included some hilarious "don't" photos. The collegiate members were grateful for the career tips and enjoyed getting to know some of our executive council members. Snaps to Larissa for putting together this helpful program and snaps to the executive council members who modeled the do and don't outfits.
If you missed out on some of these events, don't worry, we have lots of great events coming up and we would love to see you! Click over to our calendar page and join us for Zeta Mu Initiation, Senior Celebration Brunch, Order of Triangle, Happy Hour or Relay for Life.

The chapter enjoyed a break from holiday madness with a fabulous happy hour at Paradise Grille in Del Mar. Our fireside location was perfect for a crisp, fall evening of catching up with our sisters and imbibing a little something to keep us warm. We met wonderful new faces and enjoyed seeing some familiar ones. Snaps to Emily for planning a fantastic event and snaps to team Melissa/Larissa for putting together the cute gift packages for each attendee. Keep checking the calendar section for more fun events to come in the new year! Happy Holidays!
