2014 Tau Sigma National Conference
Tau Sigma National Conference
Eastern Kentucky University chapter of Tau Sigma was recently represented at the National Tau Sigma Conference in San Antonio, Texas by president, A.J. Chandler, secretary, Keri Brown and advisor Gail Creekmore.
The focus of the conference was, how Tau Sigma can help our colleges and universities better serve the needs of transfer students. Students participated in sessions to learn more about how to develop our membership not just in quantity but in quality as well. A lot of people doing nothing does not bring about change. It only takes a few dedicated students to effect real change in our chapter, on our campus and in our community. Tau Sigma advisors were able to learn about successful methods of delivering better services to transfer students, thereby helping them to be more successful as a transfer student.
Not all the learning took place in the conference room. Tau Sigma’s enjoyed a historic ghost tour of San Antonio via Segway and were able to tour the Alamo. The entire conference was an exciting learning experience enjoyed by all.
Tau Sigma is an academic honor society designed specifically to "recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students."
