As we begin CHARACTER COUNTS! Week, we are called to consider the six key pillars of character. As women of character, we will explore one pillar of character per day. What is citizenship? Citizenship is a call to commit to changing the world around you for the better; to participate in the process of government, and to do your share to help your community improve.
Tonight happens to be the third and final Presidential Debate, and we’re so proud that it will occur at Lynn University, the home of Eta Eta chapter! We have six women of character who will attend tonight’s debate. Aren’t you envious? They will see the dialogue of two very intelligent men who have stepped up in service to our Country.

American women were jailed and ostracized for advocating for the right to vote, and as a women’s organization, we want you to take a closer look at the rights and privileges of citizenship. As we prepare for an election cycle, we want you to engage in watching the various debates to learn more about your role as an engaged citizen. Tri Sigma women vote! Let’s be engaged in the process that is our duty and responsibility.
As we know, part of our mission recognizes and embraces the importance of developing strong womanly character. For the first time as an organization, we will be celebrating National CHARACTER COUNTS! Week, which will occur on October 21-27, 2012. During this time, we will focus on the six pillars of character, as well as our own five core values of wisdom, power, faith, hope, and love.

For the next 40 days, Tri Sigma will be engaging in a conversation with you and with our inter-fraternal peers and partners. The conversation has not started today, in fact, this conversation has challenged members of the fraternity and sorority community for decades. Let’s take personal responsibility to dispel the myth that hazing is acceptable in any values based or team based environment. It is easy to support solutions to end hazing. For 40 days leading up to National Hazing Prevention Week (September 24 – 28, 2012), one commonly heard excuse for hazing will be posted via the Twitter accounts for HazingPrevention.Org (@preventhazing) and Tri Sigma.

Tabitha Venkersammy, Beta Upsilon – Penn State, is spending a semester working at the Magic Kingdom. We know Tabitha (or @tibbyvenk as she is known on Twitter), has experienced many “magical moments” during her time as a cast member at Disney World. The culture at Walt Disney World invites all staff, or “cast members” as they are also called, to create magical moments for guests whenever possible. What if our values were a focused part of what we brought to our workplace? For some of you, they are. We know the world needs a little more magic, and the values of Tri Sigma – wisdom, power, faith, hope and love have found purpose because of your moments with others. Let’s hear more about Tabitha’s magical moment. Click in to read more!
Our Dunham Women of Character Institute is supported and enhanced by our fantastic mentors. Tri Sigma makes the intentional choice to partner a group of women with two older mentors who help guide the Dunham experience.
