Why Join

To Empower Yourself and others: We seek to empower all women. We make a strong commitment to elevate the student experience on the college campus. We provide a member experience that is grounded in tradition and values with a spirit of innovation and collaboration. You can expect to grow your communication, conflict resolution, and resume writing and interviewing skills, just to name a few. Providing members with the tools they need for future success is essential to the Tri Sigma experience. This is a long-term commitment to bettering and empowering women.  

To Develop Lifelong Friendships: Tri Sigma was founded and built upon bonds of friendship and grew from those shared bonds, uniting and welcoming women into our sisterhood. Historically, there is evidence that membership was exclusive, and not all women were considered for membership.  While we cannot change our past, we can influence the future. We know there is more we can do to ensure all women of every color and creed are welcome and embraced within Tri Sigma. 

No matter where you go, you can always be involved in Tri Sigma and gain/contribute to the benefits of Tri Sigma. You can be a national volunteer, assist our Foundation in providing more scholarships and grants, serve as a mentor and advisor, working to form an alumnae chapter, work on national projects (programming, committees, Convention), or get involved with Panhellenic on a national level. 

To Cultivate Leadership Skills: Tri Sigma offers valuable leadership and personal development experiences throughout the life of a member. Opportunities for immediate leadership roles exist for all members through committee membership and eventually for leadership in the chapter, Panhellenic council, and fraternity/sorority community. Tri Sigma also provides leadership opportunities through national programming and conferences, as well as offers scholarships to attend such programs as UIFI (Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute – leadership and Fraternity/Sorority development program). 

How to Join


The College Panhellenic Council at most colleges and universities host a primary recruitment period to assist potential new members in finding an organization to join. During this process, potential new members attend recruitment events for all campus Panhellenic sororities and participate in mutual selection to find the right fit for both the potential new member and chapter. To see when your campus hosts recruitment, contact your campus college Panhellenic or fraternity/sorority life office.
