SIGMA SIGMA SIGMA
Founded on April 20, 1898, Sigma Sigma Sigma (also called Tri Sigma) became a national American women's sorority. Tri Sigma is also part of the Farmville Four, which is a group of four sororities all founded at the State Female Normal School.
Tri Sigma was founded at the State Female Normal School by eight students. It started off at the S.S.S. Club in 1897, where two of the eight women would lead the meetings for the secret society. A year later the women announced the founding society known as Sigma Sigma Sigma.
Tri Sigma has the Sigma Sigma Sigma Foundation which helps raise and donate funds for charitable and educational purposes. In recent years, Tri Sigma joined with March of Dimes as their national philanthropic partner.
