Tau Sigma - Lambda Chapter

Tau Sigma is an academic honor society designed specifically to recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students.

Chartered in 1999, Tau Sigma was created for transfer students who may have difficulty meeting residency requirements for other honor societies. It allows successful transfer students opportunities for leadership and service commensurate with their academic achievement.

Lambda Chapter was organized at University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2003 as one of the first dozen chapters. Seventeen national scholarships have been awarded to chapter members in 14 years of competition.
