Faithful unto death.
The Mission of Tri Sigma Sorority
To establish among its members a perpetual bond of friendship, to develop in them strong womanly character, and to impress upon them high standards of conduct.
About Tri Sigma
As women of the first sorority on the campus of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, the Alpha Mu chapter of Tri Sigma seeks to uphold our five core values of wisdom, power, faith, hope, and love while serving our local and national communities and fostering our powerful bonds of friendship. Our vision as Tri Sigma women is to create a place where our members are provided with exceptional experiences that will empower them to change the world. As it is written in our creed, we strive so that we may become inspired leaders, support causes greater than ourselves, seek wisdom and joy, and live purposeful lives of integrity, faith, empathy, understanding, and love.
Tri Sigma Scholarship Opportunities
The Tri Sigma Foundation offers many scholarships on a yearly basis to its members for both academic purposes and leadership programming. In addition to the sum of more than half a million dollars that the Tri Sigma Foundation has awarded thus far, the Alpha Mu chapter has established a Tri Sigma Endowed Scholarship, which ensures that at least one member of our chapter is awarded a Foundation scholarship each year.
