Transfer students inducted into honor society

Transfer students inducted into honor society

04/16/2024 

Forty-five SUNY Cortland transfer students were inducted into Tau Sigma National Honor Society on Monday, April 1. Tau Sigma, including its SUNY Cortland Pi chapter, is an academic honor society designed specifically to recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students.

Recognizing academic achievements, students must transfer to an institution of higher learning from another academic institution with at least one full year’s academic credits satisfied at the prior institution(s) and must earn at least a grade point average of 3.5 or better after earning at least 12 credits at Cortland.

More than 90 students, families, faculty and staff attended the ceremony in the Corey Union Function Room, hosted by the Advisement and Transition Office. President Erik J. Bitterbaum provided a welcome and Ryan Vooris, chair of the sport management department and transfer student himself, presented the keynote address. Students learned more about the roots of Tau Sigma, recited the Tau Sigma pledge and were formally inducted after receiving their certificate and Tau Sigma pin.  Inductees had an opportunity to recognize a faculty or staff member who has influenced them at SUNY Cortland.

This year was the 20th year for the Pi chapter at SUNY Cortland, which has inducted over 1,000 students since 2004.
