I have exhausted my web-search capabilities and this is the only answer I have been able to find:
"What is the meaning of the Triple T's?
Only the brothers of Phi Sigma Kappa know the true meaning of the Triple T’s."
My boyfriend, whom I'll probably marry at this point, wears a ring with this symbol on it everyday. He won't tell me what it means, other than the meaning is "close to his values", and that they are in another language, "not one you can look up in a book." He is a man of character and made a promise to the fraternity never to tell. Knowing him, he's going to keep that promise, but I'm curious and it is driving me nuts!!! I've never been in the greek society and don't really think it is cool to keep secrets from your loved ones, but I'm not going to break up with him over this (at least not yet, especially if any of you can help me out). I can't imagine, with my curiousity, living out the rest of my life without ever knowing. Please help if you have any information.
I originally gathered they had something to do with the cardinal principals of the fraternity:
However, according to this latter site, the creed and cardinal principles weren't drafted untill 1934, whilst the triple T's were created in 1873:
It doesn't mean that the T's and the principles aren't still related somehow, but none of this gives me any clue how the strange drawing of the T's fits into anything. HELP ME, PLEASE!!!!!! What do they mean?
