Sigma Delta Lambda Sorority, Inc. was founded at Texas State University during the fall of 1996. During this time at Texas State, there were no Latino Greeks on campus. The eleven founding mothers saw the need for an organization that was geared towards Latinas and through their hard work they established the first Latino Greek Organization at Texas State University.
Since SDL's founding in 1996, SDL has had a rich history at Texas State. The Multicultural Greek Council was founded by Sigma Delta Lambda and Omega Delta Phi. Through these early efforts done by the ladies of Sigma Delta Lambda, other Latino organizations were able to find a home at Texas State University.
Sigma Delta Lambda's Beta chapter was founded in the fall of 2002 at the University of Texas at Austin. The Gamma Chapter of Sigma Delta Lambda was founded at the Texas A&M International University in the spring of 2008.
