Fortis, Voluntas, Fraternitas

Each triskelion is aware that once he joined the brotherhood his life will never be the same. His values in life must show strength (fortis). He has to listen to the dictate of his conscience to judge if his action morally right or ethically wrong (voluntas). Finally, he must bear in mind that he belongs to a brotherhood (fraternitas) of men and women, not a gang or a simple group of individuals with no purpose at all.

We are one

As a Triskelion, our signature bears the mark of the fraternity's code of conduct. We are always reminded to treat others as they would treat us. It refers not only to our fellow triskelions but to all people around us even our worst enemies. We are encouraged to rise and defend the fraternity when it is unjust criticized. As Triskelions, we are mandated to keep the name of the fraternity untarnished and unblemished. It is our duty to inform our fellow brothers and sisters on vital matters that concern the Tau Gamma Phi and Tau Gamma Sigma.

The meaning of life for every Triskelion is precious. That is why we salute each brother and sister in the fraternity in the proper manner. We respect each other because we value each other's presence in our life.In all Triskelion the meetings, we act accordingly and let other people know that we are a noble people in and out of our brotherhood.We have dreams and ambitions in life. It is for this reason that the fraternity requires us to excel in our chosen fields and endeavors. This Triskelion mandate in intended for our future success in life.

We observe self discipline

Part of the triskelion way of life is to live a life of moderation. Each Triskelion is reminded to avoid gluttony, vices, and drunkness lest they may forget God, country, their family, studies, and the fraternity. In our daily life, we have to take care what we write or say and avoid misinterpretation and lasting misunderstanding. In so doing, we have to obey all the fraternity rules and regulations, be always guided in our daily ventures by the tenets of the Fraternity. And last but not the least, we must not reveal neither to our families nor friends the concerns of the fraternity.

We came from different parts of the Philippines and we just met in a place that none of us have ever dreamed of. We were strangers from each other. But because of the bond of being a member of the Tau Gamma Phi Fraternity, we accept and embrace each others as if we have known each other for a long time. Such is the wonder of being a Triskelion. Wherever we go and whenever we meet a fellow triskelion, we cannot but feel the warmth of being home whatever we may be. Salute!
