In the 1970's, what do Triskelions do during Fridays?Answer: Dress well, party, tell stories, and be happy and sing the TGP Friday song (We're drunk last night, we're drunk the night before, we're gonna be drunk tonight...........)

In the early 1970's, what did the Triskelions do on Saturdays? Answer: Every Saturday morning, they had the Martial Arts classes and a lot of sparring was done as praticum.

In the early 70's, what did the Triskelions do during the rest of the week? As most of the Triskelions were government scholars, they studied their lessons the rest of the week whether or not they were at the Tambayan at the 3rd foor of the College of Arts and Sciences.

Can you find Triskelions at the 3rd floor of the University of the Philippines College of Arts and Sciences today? No. You won't find Triskelions at the old tambayan as the UP Administration has removed the benches for anybody to sit and hang around. If anybody is seen hanging around the 3rd floor, UP Security will tell you that you can't hang around for being suspected of being a Triskelion. If you hang around, and you have no ID, or you are a UP Alumni not taking any course, much more if you say that you are a Tau Gamma member, you will be asked to leave or be arrested for trespassing. And depending who the UP security guard confronting you, you can get searched. This is a sublte way of suppressing and harassing Tau Gamma Phi in UP Diliman. They do this for Tau Gamma Phi alone; but for other major fraternities, they can have all the tambayans they want; and thrive with no problem at all. As a consequence, the UP Diliman Triskelions are just short of running underground as they get harrassed by "You can't hang around here; you can't hang around there or anywhere." UP Administration says this allegation is baseless, then they should let Tau Gamma Phi get back their old tambayan at the 3rd floor of UP Arts and Sciences. Probably, they fear that Tau Gamma will become the biggest and most pervasive fraternity in the campus. And if that's the motive for all these oppression, that' s persecution. On the other hand, some cocomeni comedian publicity hungry gay clubs have proclaimed in national TV that they are the meanest, most destructive of frats; but the UP Admin turned a deaf ear on their boastful immoral declarations. UP Admin didn't believe them. But for the silent and humble Tau Gamma Phi in their off the beaten path tambayan and minding their own business, they get squeezed by that discrimanatory arrogant UP Admin. And this has been happening for the last 35 years. To further this irony and hypocracy, The University of the Philippines touts itself as the bearer of excellence for the Filipino people. But what they say is contrary to what they do. UP Admistration touts excellence but on the other hand suppresses a Fraternity whose mantra is excellence. There goes the hypocrisy of the UP Administration.

UP Admin should rethink their unfair policy towards Tau Gamma. Now that TGP is the biggest fraternity in the Philippines, created by Filipinos, now in 31 countries and growing, and currently accepted by different nationalities, UP Admin is the villain in all these. And what does UP Admin do? It undermines a made-in-the Philippines organization, the Tau Gamma Phi. To the Chancellor of UP , UP President, and UP Board of Regents including Senator Mar Roxas,, stop this little holocaust of yours. Give back the Tambayan of the UP Triskelions.

No, a person doesn't have to rich to become a Triskelion. He just have to have the desire to excel.

Can a "Nobody" become a Triskelion?

Yes, a 'Nobody' can become a Triskelion. And a "nobody" can become a "somebody" when he joins the Tau Gamma Phi. One just have to voluntarily adhere to it's principles. Tau Gamma Phi can provide the tools/principles tools to be a better person, for one to have a successful profession; but it is for each member to decide which tool to use. He/she can ask counsel from other Triskelions but each member charts his own future. Tau Gamma Phi is a volunteer brotherhood (Voluntariong Kapatiran).

How about a poor construction worker, can he become a Triskelion? Yes, he can become a Triskelion as long as he has the desire to excel.

How about a pre-med student, can he become a Triskelion? Yes he can become Triskelion as long as he wants to excel and improve himself.

How about the mag-babalut and mag-babakal, can they become Triskelions? Yes they can, if they want to excel and improve themselves, which absolutely is the mark of a Triskelion. Why should we deny them the benefits of Tau Gamma Phi simply because they are the under-priveleged. They are still our filipino brothers and sisters. Besides, they just need some guidance.


How about a Triskelion who is a construction worker and a Triskelion who is a doctor, what's the difference? None. They are both Triskelions and they are equals.

Why are the founding fathers of the Tau Gamma Phi good role models for young Triskelions? The founding fathers of the Tau Gamma Phi are good role models because they came from poor families and through hard work became Philippine Government Scholars; and currently are successful lawyers and executives. Contrary to the current perception, Tau Gamma Phi has the biggest fraternal alumni full of professionals, college graduates, and graduates with post graduate studies.

Regarding the Tau Gamma Phi Alumni 'full of professionals and college graduates', why arent' they trumpheted by the fraternity? They are not trumpheted because they are there. It is those who lacks accomplished members that bragging is a necessity to cover their deficiencies. Tau Gamma Phi doesn't have to do that. Tau Gamma Phi has its professional organizations like the Triskelion Order of Law, Triskelion Order of Medicine, Triskelion Order Of Nursing, Triskelion Information Technology Organization, Triskelion SeaFarers Organization, TRILEG, Triskelion Order of Business, etc,etc, too many to mention. There's no need to brag.

With regards to excelling, can people who are not members of Tau Gamma Phi excel? I don't know about them and who are we do judge anybody. If they want to excel but are not members of the fraternity, that is their own business. All we know is that when you become a member of Tau gamma Phi, you become supreme. That is why the Triskelions are collectively called the Supreme Fraternity.

What are some misconceptions about Tau Gamma Phi? One misconception about Tau Gamma Phi is that it is a service fraternity. It is not a service fraternity. It was not also meant to become a humanitatian fraternity although it can do humanitarian work on the sides. It is a supremacy fraternity for its members, for the member's family, and ultimately for the Philippines and its people, the filipino people

Another misconception is that Triskelions love to fight. Triskelions are the happiest people around and because of their competitive spirit, they naturally rise above the rest. Tau Gamma Phi is contented minding its own business. Unfortunately, we have this despicable filipino Crab Mentality. Tau Gamma Phi reserves the right to defend itself and Tau Gamma is Efficient in defending itself especially with an army of Triskelions.. It is worthwhile to note that commandants of the UP Vanguard were Triskelions too. One UP Vanguard commandant even became a Grand Triskelion during its early years. Probably, some military regiment concepts were handed down from one generation to another. But basically, Triskelions are day to day filipinos who smile, laugh, and people want to do well in life. And there should be nothing wrong with that.

Was Tau Gamma Phi copied from any other organization? There is no such thing as a completely original organization. The six founding fathers of Tau Gamma spent hours and days debating, researching, learning the ideas of the great and lesser known philosophers at the UP main lib. Bear in mind that the Philiipine government spent money on the education of these six scholars. The product of their debates and researches is Tau Gamma Phi. Some subtle influences can also be traced from the Jewish people, one of the oldest civilizations in the world. The filipino people got a million-fold return on their investments on these six scholars. At some point, they should be even considered as Philipine heroes.

Going back to the Tau Gamma Phi being original; yes it is. It is a product of filipino creative ingenuity.


Does Tau Gamma Phi condone illegal activiies? Tau Gamma Phi does not condone illegal activities.Rather it promotes good citizenry, personality and character building for its members. Any member who participates in illegal activites gets discipline on site, and/or further disciplinary action, or expulsion upon due process in a Tau Gamma court.


Tell something about "Counsel from other Triskelions"

Tau Gamma Phi has a vast network of members from all walks of life and from multitudes of professions. And each one is willing to give an opinion regarding your situation. The problem is finding the right Brod with the specific skill and knowledge regarding your situation as there are so many members.

Tau Gamma recognise the importance of these skills in the real world.

What does Fraternitas mean?

Fraternitas means Triskelions treat and respect other Triskelions like brothers. That is why we address each other Brod. or Tol(from Kaputol, the better half). Fraternitas includes assisting other Triskelions and the spirit of helping is contagious. As individual Triskelions, Tau Gamma councils, TGP regions help each other; the Fraternity becomes a vast pool of resources limited only by one's imagination.

What does unity mean?

Unity means we share the same goals, same tenets and codes, same doctrines, same principles, the same Culture. It means we share the same spirit. It means we are all family members of a big extended family called Tau Gamma Phi.

It is worthwhile to note that during it's founding years, Tau Gamma has a cousin called Beta Sigma.

Tau Gamma Phi cullture means the Fraternity's Wealth of Traditions which includes the songs we sing, our poetry, our music, our seals and emblems, the Triskelions Arts that we see, our lingo, our tales, our literature and the way we do things.

Why is Punctuality such a big deal in Tau Gamma Phi?

Punctuality is act of being on time. Tau Gamma emphasizes it's importance as a basis in formulating first inpressions. As an example, if you are applying for a job and you showed up late in your job interview, you won't get the job. If you are negotiatiing a contract and you are late in the meeting, you just lost that contract. Who wants to deal with people who doesn't show up on time. The translation for a person who is not punctual(tardy) is that everything he does is always behind schedule. Who wants to deal with people like that. On the other hand, if a person arrives on time or a little ahead of time, he feels confident, relaxed, and manifest an impression that everything is under control. And that's what people like to see.

What can you do if you just can't be on time?

If for reasons beyond your control you cannot be on time, call the other person and tell him that you will be late. You have a cell phone, don't you?

May nag-Text, paano raw kung walang cell phone and ma-le-late?

Frist of all, how can you send a text message if you don't have a cell phone. Pero kung wala ka talagang cell phone, makegamit ka ng cell phone. Or if not, humanap ka ng land line diyan sa tindahan sa kanto. It's not the end of the world.

Why does Tau Gamma Phi encourage Fund Raising projects among its members?

Tau Gamma Phi encourage fund raising projects in order to teach its members the principles of handling money. And there is no greater internship than having an actual fund raising project where monies are involved. This internship through projects involves proper bookkeeping, tagging of receipts, incomes, expenses, maintainance of chapter bank accounts, proper reporting. The amounts may not be big but the principles are the same.

Better commit mistakes and learn from it while the amount involved are small rather than commit the mistakes in the real world where serious money is involved. Tau Gamma is a good training ground to hone your financial skills.That's why Triskelions end up as good money managers and you can see a lot of them in Philippine banking and finance.

As to the fund raising projects you want to go into, that will depend on your chapter and brods on your chapter where there is no limit of ideas. Tau Gamma is federal in nature. It's a Federation.


Why is a bank account a requirement for each Tau Gamma Chapter? Because maintaining a bank account is a small step in the financial training of Triskelions..

It is only when they have developed themselves when Triskelions attain the capacity to help non-members. Help yourselves first before you can help others. That means acquiring and perfecting your skills, getting an education; then, you have the capacity to help others. It's like: how can you donate money if you don't even have money to ride a jeepney.

I am not a Triskelion. I am a stand-by or a "Tambay" in filipino. If I become a member, how will it affect me?
