In 1898, stepping out on a path from Farmville, Virginia, eight young women away from home and family, found each other and began their journey in friendship. These women shared a special bond as friends who regarded each other as sisters. Reaching out to others who joined them on the journey, together, they established a sisterhood called Sigma Sigma Sigma. We find friends within the bonds of Tri Sigma and we regard these friends as sisters. As we enter into a state of being Sisters, we become a Sisterhood. Tri Sigma friendships are built around our core values of faith, hope, love, wisdom and power.
Tri Sigma believes in outreach within our communities. As a dedicated, caring Sorority, we aim to serve those in need. Many of our efforts revolve around our commitment to “Sigma Serves Children,” as chapters engage in a variety of efforts for the betterment of children around the world. Even more, Tri Sigma’s philanthropy supports hospital play therapy programs for children.
Tri Sigma is focused on advancement and success and we offer valuable leadership and personal development experiences throughout the lifetime of a member. All programming is based on our fundamental mission of establishing a perpetual bond of friendship, developing strong, womanly character and impressing a high standard of conduct.
We invite you to join the Tri Sigma journey as we strive to provide exceptional experiences that will empower women to change the world.
April 1, 1995 was when our Zeta Tau chapter was established here at Missouri Western State University. Every day since then we have been striving to be the best that we can be. Every year trying to push ourselves to be better than the last. In the Zeta Tau chapter we are constantly thriving to be women of character and to act like a worthy and lawful Sigma Sigma Sigma. Here at Missouri Western State University along with every other Sigma chapter we have zero tolerance for hazing. We believe in empowering women not holding them back from all the they are capable being. Each one of the women in this chapter want to be the change that we want to see in the world. Faith, hope, love, wisdom, and power are our five core values and we work everyday in order to uphold these. Our philanthropies are deeply connected to our commitment of "Sigma Serves Children". Our two philanthropies are The Robbie Page Memorial Fund and March of Dimes. The Robbie Page Memorial Fund raises money to allow children in pediatric hospitals to have Child's Play therapy. Child's Play therapy gives the children in the hospital a chance to go through therapy but not know that they are. Their rooms will be colorful and welcoming. Along with their therapy sessions to be more kid friendly and make them feel like they are not in the hospital. March of Dimes raises money and awareness for premature babies and their mothers all over the nation. This foundation touches a lot of people and truly stands for Sigma's commitment.
