Brotherhood and Sisterhood
Membership requirements for both Tau Beta Sigma and Kappa Kappa Psi includes a selection process based on GPA, attendance at sponsored events, and standings with fellow sisters and brothers.
Previous to this event, the new brothers and sisters attend a series of classes where they learn about Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma. During this process, the new members are assigned a Big Brother/Sister to help guide them as well as a Mom/Dad, the identity of which is kept a secret until families, when the new members guess who their families are based on clues given to them in the weeks prior!
After everyone's families are revealed, presents are exchanged and everyone gets together, bonds over delicious food, and celebrates the new brothers and sisters of our organizations!
