Our Objective


Strong Sister, Silly Sister, Inc. (SSSS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to fostering ethical behavior and supporting holistic development, including well-being. Our student-driven program empowers first-year college and university women to achieve academic excellence, embrace their true selves, and create positive change in their communities.  Our focus on leadership development, faith exploration, community building, well-being promotion, and nurturing healthy relationships fosters a transformative journey of growth and empowerment.  While we prioritize addressing the specific needs of African American college women, we welcome all first-year college and university women to join us in pursuing academic success, self-acceptance, and meaningful impact on others.  Together, we strive to build a stronger and more inclusive community.

What Our Participants Are Saying

  • Loved the variation of ages of facilitators; Having peers help conduct this event made me want to listen more.

  • This is a great program and really helped me reflect on myself and how to be a better person.

  • I’m sitting here thinking if this program didn’t exist, where would these young women get all this great information?  Yes, it is very needed.

  • It is needed to help build community between female students at Purdue.  It helps provide a forum that is not located anywhere else on Purdue’s campus.

  • The SSSS program is a great way to bring women together and to inspire them to succeed academically, socially, emotionally, and mentally.

  • All young women need that safe place that is open, honest, true, genuine, and similar (women). We need to empower, grow, and learn one another.

  • It’s a small group of African American women on this campus I feel will benefit personally and academically with this event.  It is empowering and inspiring.
