As a senior in Tau Beta Sigma, I have taken some time to reflect on the years I have spent in the sorority. The sorority has brought me tremendous joy and I wouldn’t trade my time I’ve spent in it for the world. I remember when I was a membership candidate, my big told me to really take in every moment spent doing the little things such as passing out sandwiches at games, playing pep bands at elementary schools and attending alumni rituals. Take in every single moment because pretty soon, you blink and it’s gone. I took that to heart and got as involved as I could from the start. In my time in TBS I have attended two national conventions, two district conventions, served as my chapter’s Member at Large and the Southwest District Parliamentarian, attended thousands of hours of chapter meetings, played in too many pep bands to count and handed out hundred of game day sandwiches. I would absolutely do all of it again in a heartbeat. TBS has taught me to stand tall, be strong, and reach for the stars. No matter how alone I might feel, I have an entire sisterhood supporting me. Tau Beta Sigma has provided me with some of my best friends in the whole world and I couldn’t be more grateful.
So as a soon-to-be alumnus, I would like to pass on some advice to the incoming membership candidates. Enjoy every moment you spend in this organization, because it goes by in a blink. Even those late night chapter meetings! Go to The Mont after chapter, have study sessions with your big and little, attend sisterhood retreats and District Conventions. I promise you, the bonds you form in the sisterhood are absolutely remarkable and will truly last you a lifetime.
