Iota Sigma Rhoer Club

The Rhoer Club is an affiliate of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. consisting of high school aged girls with high scholastic ambitions. The program consists of training and guidance in the areas of education, civics, the fine arts and social graces.

The goals of the program are: to train and guide young women for leadership and exceptional womanhood which will enable them to make valuable contributions to society, both in their chosen fields of endeavors and in service to fellow humans.

The Rhoer Club seeks to inspire, encourage and challenge young women to make the most of themselves in terms of their talents for vocations.  The Sorority strives to help them develop broad and wholesome attitudes toward life and society.

The Rhoer Club encourages the young women to seek higher education.  If the young lady pursues a four-year college degree education, the young lady is encouraged to join the Sorority.  If the young lady chooses a vocational training program, then the young lady is encouraged to join the Sorority’s adult affiliate called the Philos.

Rhoers participate in a variety of activities including Bowling, TV parties, Big Sister Get Together, Campus Tours, Step Shows, and Movie Nights and, of course, eating and hanging out!
