On January 29, the Beta Gamma Chapter of Tau Beta Sigma welcomed its newest 33 membership candidates in our First Degree Ceremony, one of the first steps the new class will take in becoming active members of the organization.
RELA, the newest class of our chapter, started the ceremony with our big/little reveal, and had the chance to introduce themselves to both their TBS “big sisters” and their KKY “big brothers.” Because the membership candidate class is so large, some “families” had more than just two “big sisters” and one “big brother” — in fact, some of the families were as large as seven people! Still, the active members of Tau Beta Sigma enjoyed meeting their families and congratulating their littles on taking the first step of the awesome process of becoming actives.
Once the bigs and littles were revealed, the active members of Tau Beta Sigma gathered in the Byrd Room, or study room, of the music school, holding hands right over left as we waited for RELA to enter and complete the first step of initiation into our chapter. Meanwhile, the big brothers of KKY waited in the band hall, where each family had previously set up a picnic for their little - bringing their favorite meal and a few gifts to celebrate the completion of First Degree.
The Beta Gamma Chapter of Tau Beta Sigma is excited and ready for a fun semester of initiating our newest class, and teaching them how to be the best actives they can be for the years to come!
