Big/Little System

We are an organization committed to making everyone feel welcome so we have very our own big/little system. Every new member of TASA will receive a veteran TASA member as a big who will serve as a mentor throughout their college career and help them become acquainted with TASA. The big/little system is an integral part of TASA that helps us form the TASA family that we pride ourselves in. At the beginning of every school year, we host a few big/little GBMs so that new members can meet current members and choose their big.
