MANILA, Philippines — The UP Sigma Beta, the first sorority organized in the University of the Philippines (UP) and in the Philippines, celebrates its 90th founding anniversary on Feb. 14.

“We are older than the women’s suffrage movement in the Philippines. Our founding sisters started the sorority at a time when women were not even allowed to vote,” said Fe Cruz-Tantiansu who serves as senior adviser of the UP Sigma Beta Sorority Alumnae Association Inc.


The UP Sigma Beta has various sociocivic commemorative activities lined up for the year in all UP campuses.


To celebrate its 90th anniversary, the UP Sigma Beta Sorority Alumnae Association will hold an anniversary dinner and Induction ceremony on March 17 at Club Filipino.

The 90th Grand Orchid Ball will be held at Okada Manila on Dec. 6. For more information, please email: [email protected].
