TYRO GYN PHI T G Φ - The history of the fraternity was traced back on [October 7, 1987] when Bro. Poly “Gaga” Carpio together with the Seven (7) Fathers perceived the rapid changes of the country after the 1986 EDSA Revolution [1] which was the biggest mass demonstration in the history of the Philippines which led to the downfall of the authoritarian regime of President Ferdinand Marcos and the installation of Corazon Aquino as president of the Republic. The political progress was made in revitalizing democratic institutions and respect for civil liberties which led into the creation of TYRO GYN PHI or otherwise known as “THE BEGINNING OF GOODWILL FRATERNITY & SORORITY” [2] at Baliwasan Chico, Baliwasan Grande, Zamboanga City [3], Philippines [4]. The fraternity was conceptualized to be a preliminary point in creating a better and well rounded organization of men and women who were ready to accept any challenges in life for the sake of the fraternity & the country. From the start of its inception, the group was composed of professionals & students who initially took trial leap in propagating the principles of the fraternity. The fraternity was able to capture the minds and hearts of the studentry of Zamboanga City wherein later on became the core defense of the fraternity during the transition period from a small group into a full pledge organization.


The unique ideals of the TYRO GYN PHI reverberated and escalated in all areas of Zamboanga peninsula [5] to include Basilan[6] Sulu [7] and Tawi-Tawi Provinces [8] which later on became the identified basin of fraternity. A member of TYRO GYN PHI is famously called a “TYRONIAN”. A Tyronian replicates the true essence of the fraternity by internalizing the written pillars and principles of the fraternity in order to achieve the major goal of individual members for the good of the organization.

Battle Cry of the Fraternity[edit]

The EDSA Revolution became the known battle cry of the TYRO GYN PHI in seeking political changes of the country from a dictatorship into a democratic institution wherein the rights of the people were given much emphasis and significance, as what the TYRO GYN PHI has lived up with the fraternity prime motto of “Every Tyronian stand with its own feet, fight with its own hands, live and die with its own dignity”. The motto has boldly shown the combating spirit of the fraternity in search for a genuine and comprehensible way of living that will generate the collective efforts of men and women of the country in reaching for a prosperous and conducive environment.

Distinct Traditions[edit]

One of the distinct tradition of the TYRO GYN PHI SIGMA being followed today as part of its sacred ritual was the burning of coin, when heated, the coin perched on the left upper shoulder of a member causing to inflict a wound that will remain a forever mark into the body of a Tyronian which signifies his/her perpetual attachment to the TYRO GYN PHI SIGMA’s way of life: “Once a TYRONIAN will always remained a loyal TYRONIAN”.


TYRO GYN PHI SIGMA was created to be the grassroots of service oriented fraternity in respect with the goodwill intention and common orientation of the organization in developing a corps of men and women that has a fear on God, well-discipline, courageous and has love to his/her country without any reservation and personal interest. Members of the fraternity, particularly, the Alumni [9] are engrossed with the community services and school based projects to promote the fraternity’s prime ideals.

Seal of the Fraternity[edit]

TRI-ARROW – Represents the triangular integrity of the fraternity’s Three (3) Laws (Country, International & Universal Laws) in which every single TYRONIAN abided in order to promote the principles of the organization to its highest standard.

GYRATING GOLDEN YELLOW CIRCLE - Symbolizes the unity and solidarity of the fraternity & sorority towards one common goal.

GYRATING RED CIRCLE - Symbolizes the braveness and firmness of the fraternity & sorority towards any given task.

YEAR 1987 – Represents the foundation of the fraternity on October 7, 1987.

TYRO GYN PHI – Represents the fraternity itself.

NON EST NOBIS SOLUM (Latin) – Represents one of its principles in guiding the fraternity’s way of life.


We pledge solemnly, to the creator of heaven and earth to the constitution of our nation, being a bonafide member of the TYRO GYN PHI SIGMA FRATERNITY AND SORORITY to protect the organization as well as my fellow brothers and sisters at all caused, by the seal of the honorable organization I service my self to the citizens of this country, to help the needy and the weak. Through this, I was ordered and was baptized by the fire of obedience and secrecy, by blood and my virtue of my pledge is sealed in my mind and in my soul and its my life time pledge, to honor God, my Country, my Organization and my People and so be it.

Life of Tyronians (Tiger Ways) [edit]

The ability to survive despite of chaos and hardship; it has the ability to incorporate with others; a fierce ally to protect its den from predators; and has the ability to defend its self when provoked. The unique quality of a TIGER is a distinction of a life of TYRONIANS: a fierce blooded and intelligent mankind which compliments the entire organization that “Lives by the Rules and Dies by the Rules”.

From its Inception[edit]

Since 1987, TYRO GYN PHI has maintained a proud tradition of creating and perpetuating brotherhood for good men coast to coast. Dedicated Alumni have long preserved and enriched the tradition with a vision for the future that exemplifies the experience of the past. Through the years, many brothers have noted that TYRO GYN PHI has made significant contributions early in their lives. With gratitude, these members have remained loyal and are supportive of the fraternity’s future. The fraternity exists to create a bridge between all men & women committed in seeking the social advancement of under represented populations. The seed of the organization has been planted and the need became clear for a formal structure to contain the mutual feelings among members. The TYRONIANS' SOCIETY has always been and always will be an organization steeped in the traditions of the past and dedicated to the pursuit of Brotherhood & Sisterhood. The organization is made up of men & women from all cultures, religious backgrounds and interests; it has spread throughout the Philippine archipelago as TYRO GYN PHI or otherwise known as The Beginning of Goodwill Fraternity & Sorority. The fraternity does not discriminate and/or distinguish on the basis of race, disability, creed, political beliefs. The fraternity maintains its ultimate tradition to be loyal and unity in order to achieve its prime goals.
