Potential new Sigma Kappa sisters follow active members in the Sigma Kappa cheer outside of the house on Wednesday, August 17.

UA Sigma Kappa sorority members received an email Wednesday afternoon asking them to pay attention and be aware of who is going in and out of their house or lurking around the property.

The email, sparked by an incident that occurred Monday night, was written by Sigma Kappa President Taylor Brown.

The email detailed that two college age men entered the Sigma Kappa chapter facility around 11 p.m., where they wandered until sisters living in noticed, removed them from the property and called UAPD.

The two men were later spotted outside the Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity parking lot on Tuesday night, where they said “we’ll be watching you” to a Sigma Kappa member, according to the email.

In the email Brown said their advisory board supervisor, Fraternity and Sorority Programs, risk management and UAPD had all been notified of the incident.

“We have taken many precautions in order to keep everyone safe as we are unsure why these men are lurking around our property,” Brown said in the email. “With all this being said I ask that you all watch who is coming in and out of the house, watch that all doors close behind you, be aware of your surroundings not only around Sigma Kappa but on campus, and please do not be walking around alone.”

Brown stated in the email that they are doing everything they can to figure out the situation, but asked everyone to be cautious and report any suspicious activity to her immediately until they know more.

“We’ve handled everything from notifying FSP, UAPD, our national headquarters our housing court and anything and everything between,” Brown told the Daily Wildcat. “The situation’s been handled, everything’s all good.”
