It’s always an exciting time when we are able to share Tri Sigma’s sisterhood and grow our organization by establishing a new chapter on a campus or re-establish a closed chapter.
Recent Chapter Additions
Theta Mu – Randolph-Macon College
The Theta Mu chapter at Randolph-Macon College, Ashland, VA was established in spring 2020. We didn’t know just a few days after bid day that classes would be suspended. The chapter has stuck with it through even the hardest of times for a new chapter and will be participating in their first in-person recruitment in fall 2021. We are excited for the future success of the Theta Mu Chapter.
Starting a Tri Sigma chapter
Tri Sigma is a member of the National Panhellenic Conference and follows all processes and procedures outlined in the Manual of Information. If you are interested in starting a Tri Sigma chapter on your campus, your first step would be to connect with the college panhellenic council if one exists, or if not, a student affairs professional who works with student organizations.
If you have questions about our starting a new Tri Sigma chapter please contact Director of Growth Initiatives Katelyn Whitty.
New Chapter Experience
The new chapter experience is a little different than the established chapter experience. As always, Tri Sigma looks for members to be good chapter leaders, as well as good chapter members. We offer chapter officer positions, national chair positions, numerous local chair positions, and committees.
In a new chapter experience, all new members will have an opportunity to serve on a committee and help the new chapter meet its goals. Some committee options may be service, education, programming, finance, and member accountability. To learn more about our new chapter experience visit our extension website.
How can Tri Sigmas support new chapters?
Get connected! Do you work on a college campus or are you connected to one in your area or region, if so tell us about it and let us know when they start an exploratory committee. Join your local alumnae panhellenic or simply recommend new members to us when you hear about a new chapter being formed.
Once we know we are joining a campus community, we send out an alumnae volunteer email. If you can, volunteer your time and talent to our newest chapters. There are so many ways to get involved from dropping off balloons or flowers to being the chapter advisor.
