What interests you about TBΣ?

I believe that it is important to give back to the community, I think Tau Beta Sigma is a really great way for me to do that and help out the bands and music department of ISU. I also think that it is a really great way to get to know others who are not in my section and make some more friends who enjoy music and band like I do.
