We are so excited that you are interested in joining our bond! Tau Beta Sigma is national co-ed band sorority that serves the collegiate bands while promoting the pillars of service, music, leadership, and sisterhood. The Theta Lambda chapter is a co-ed chapter at Auburn University that serves alongside our brother organization, Kappa Kappa Psi.
In order to be initiated into Tau Beta Sigma, you have to participate in a membership candidacy period. We traditionally have membership classes in the fall and the spring. There is absolutely no hazing in Tau Beta Sigma. Our rush process begins at the beginning of each semester, and bids are distributed following our formal rush.
How do I join Tau Beta Sigma?
To join Tau Beta Sigma, you must attend our mandatory rushes and are encouraged to come to our other hang out rushes to get to know the sisters! Information about these rushes will be posted on this page as well as on our Instagram page and through band-wide emails. Attendance at Formal Rush is required to receive an invitation for membership to Tau Beta Sigma.
