Tri-Sigma Junior Leads Sorority To Growth
By Tayler Cali
Jenna Ragen, a junior and psychology major, plays a major role for the Sigma Sigma Sigma (Tri-Sigma) sorority on campus by advocating for others to join and become more involved.
The Connecticut native joined the sorority in fall 2018.
“When I decided to go through recruitment, I was looking to join an organization that would get me more involved on campus,” said Ragen. “I also wanted to take part in community service and become a part of a sisterhood made up of girls that would be true friends to me.”
Founded in April 1898, Tri-Sigma offers a variety of social and leadership opportunities. Also looking to create lifelong bonds, Ragen was enamored with what the sorority had to offer.
“My favorite memory as a [Tri-Sigma] member was the reveal days of getting my big and then a year later, getting a little of my own,” she said. “I love them both like sisters and feel so lucky to have them in my Sigma family.”
Many incoming freshmen and transfer female students may feel intimidated at first to join a sorority. As the organization continues to grow and welcome new members, Ragen encourages individuals to step up and join the sisterhood.
“Joining Tri-Sigma gives girls an opportunity to make lifelong friends,” she said. “It’s a wonderful resume-builder and a way to learn meaningful leadership skills that can be used in the future.”
For those looking to join the sorority, Tri-Sigma offers an online submission form where alumni ultimately recommend potential members. If Ragen is any indication, sisterhoods like Tri-Sigma leave a lasting positive impact on all members.
