Alpha Alpha Alpha, or Tri-Alpha, is the national honor society for first generation college students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Each year, a class of 10 students and 10 faculty/staff are inducted into the TCNJ Eta Mu chapter.
Tri-Alpha was founded in March 2018 at Moravian Moravian University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Over 100 members of the Alpha Chapter were initiated that day, including undergraduate students, faculty, staff, alumni, and honorary members. Following the successful induction, Alpha Alpha Alpha was incorporated so that chapters could be started on campuses across the country. Tri-Alpha exists as a not-for-profit (501(c)3) organization, for the purposes of supporting the activities of the honors society.
