❥ University of Wisconsin-Whitewater • Sigma Sigma Sigma • Then & Now!

Last spring, Tri Sigma at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater had a fire break out in their chapter house. Thankfully, firefighters were able to quickly respond and all of the members made it out safely. However, the house and its belongings, including composites were damaged by smoke and water.

The Digital Pix & Composites team made the trip up to Wisconsin to retrieve the composites. The damaged composites were carefully deconstructed. After editing the images, the restored composites were printed and re-framed using hand-crafted wooden frames. Digital Pix was able to deliver the repaired composites back to the sorority house for the start of the fall semester!

What are some tips you have for scoping out littles? Our bid day was this past Sunday and people are already trying to claim littles. It's so stressful and I'm staying away from the drama and aggression but should I take as many out on lunch dates as possible? Or just go to bond nights? I just don't know how to go about it or how I even feel about taking a little. Thanks!! :)

The big/little process is a lot like recruitment ~ competitive, stressful, hard work and no guarantees! I think you should participate at the level where you are comfortable. You don’t have to go crazy, but you also don’t want to totally sit back and do nothing. If possible, why don’t you narrow down your choices first. Rather than go on 30 lunch dates, maybe create a top 10 list? Right now you are feeling overwhelmed, but if you tackle this in a way you can manage, then you will feel much better. 

It’s not realistic for you to court the entire new member class! So review the pledges and pick your top ten for closer consideration. Then attend several get-to-know-you events and start your lunch date program. By controlling what you can handle, your stress level will go way down. Maybe some girls can do it all, but you don’t have to be an energizer bunny. Do the best that you can. All it takes is ONE special sister to call your own. 

Connect with some sweet new members who seem the most likely candidates. Maybe even look for a little who’s not part of your chapter’s current feeding frenzy. The quieter girl who is not being pursued so heavily. You can truly bless a new sister with your friendship and love by being her beautiful big. It will be worth it in the end, when the craziness is over! xoxo ;)

I am a legacy for a sorority that was once on my college campus, but has now disbanded. What would the process be like to recolonize the chapter?

Asked by

You would need to start by contacting the sorority’s national headquarters. You can email them and ask if they have any plans for reinstating the chapter. They are the ones, along with your university administration, who spearhead all expansions. It must be financially viable for the organization and there must be enough interested PNMs to make it worthwhile.

Sometimes a student like you can help by collecting names of students who are interested. You would work with the sorority’s regional advisor and your greek life office to launch an “interest” group or start a petition. But the process begins by having a conversation with the national office. If they are not behind the effort to expand to your campus, the idea won’t go far. You never know though, ask and find out if there is anything you can do to help spark interest! xoxo :)

sorority Q&A: is it better to pull back or reach out?

Q: I’ve been in my sorority for a year and in that year, I’ve met some really good friends, got close to my family, and become a leader in the chapter. However, since starting up again, my friends don’t come around as much, my family is split (my g-big is a Rho Gamma, my big works more, and my twin transferred), and no one appreciates what I do in my chair role. The only girls left are cliquey/unfriendly. Can I pull away a little this semester and focus on school, or should I stick it out?

A: Sorority membership is liking a flowing river. There are always changes in course, different seasons, ups and downs and new discoveries. You are on a journey down that river, not sitting in one place. Some semesters will be frustrating, some will be fascinating. People come and go. Sisters drop out, some transfer, they move off campus, they graduate and get full time jobs. If you base your contributions on what others are doing, it will be unsatisfying and confusing.

You should participate because YOU love your organization ~ even when things change. That’s called commitment. Giving back to your sorority should be based on what you feel you can GIVE, not who notices your greatness. If you are in leadership just for the applause, then your priorities need readjusting. 

You GET what you GIVE. You can certainly draw away and be less involved. But what will that bring you in return? Less connections, less bonding and less caring. The way to improve your experience when friendly sisters depart, is to reach out, not pull back. Find new friends within the chapter, take a new Little, volunteer for something you never thought you’d try. There are other ways to spice up your greek life, instead of hanging your head and slinking away in disappointment.

During some semesters you will become involved in other college activites. But make sure it’s because you really want to take an internship or study abroad ~ not because things are a little rough and you’re tempted to throw in the towel. xoxo ;)
