About Tau Sigma

Tau Sigma

National Organization:

Tau Sigma was incorporated as a non-profit in 1999 with Auburn University being the home of the first chapter. At that time, Auburn University was becoming increasingly aware of the significant number of transfers on campus as well as the universitys inability to adequately serve them. Tau Sigma was born out of Auburn University's desire to improve its service to and recruiting and retention of transfer students.

Today, over 80 other universities have established or are currently establishing Tau Sigma chapters in their efforts to improve the services that they provide to their transfer student population. Although Tau Sigma is a relatively young organization, many members in all parts of the country have become active at their universities, participating in such activities as on-campus recruiting events for prospective transfer students, transfer student orientation, community service projects, assisting the admissions office with the recruitment of prospective transfers at junior colleges, and participating in intramural sports and socials that allow them opportunities to fellowship with one another and make new friends.

Our Chapter:

Established in 2010, the Gamma Nu chapter at Appalachian State University is one of many organizations on campus that recognize scholastic achievement but is the only honor society dedicated solely to the transfer student population. 

The mission of our chapter is very simple: Recognize and Promote Academic Excellence

We understand that college can be a very hectic time and strive to keep the responsibilities of membership very light for our chapter. Becoming a member of Tau Sigma is an honor and our goal is to contribute to the successful transfer of new students to our university.
