Sigma Sigma Sigma | Chicago North Shore Alumnae Chapter

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.

The Chicago North Shore Tri Sigma Alumnae Chapter is for Sigma Sisters in the City of Chicago and North Shore Suburbs who are looking to continue their commitment to Tri Sigma as an Alumna. Our Chapter covers a large geography from the city of Chicago along the North Shore Suburbs up to the Wisconsin Border, and Northeast Indiana.  We even have virtual members from other states and other Illinois cities outside our normal geography area.  We often refer to our subgroups as Sigmas in the City and Sigmas in the Suburbs. We vary our programs between city, suburban and virtual events.  We are great at organizing carpools!

Within our membership, we represent 15 different schools from all over the country as well as a variety of demographics. Our youngest member is in her 20’s and our oldest member is in her 70’s. Our members also are involved in a variety of industries from sales/marketing to law to finance to teaching. We also cover the range of lifestyles: single, married/no children, married/children at home, and married/empty nester. No matter where we are in our lives or what we do, we are all bound by our Sigma Sisterhood.
