Sigma Sigma Sigma

Sigma Sigma Sigma, created by the Huntingdon faculty in 1925, is an honorary society for seniors. The basis of selection for Tri-Sigma is high attainment in scholarship, spirit, and service. Service is established by a record of responsible and active participation in student activities. Spirit refers to loyalty, goodwill, and wholesome influence, and is measured by evaluations made by active student members of the society, the faculty, and the administration of the College. The criteria is applied in order to recognize students whose campus life, positive influence, and scholarly achievement are especially notable. A combination of their rankings in the areas of spirit, service, and scholarship places Tri-Sigma students in the top 15 percent of all candidates for graduation.
