Kappa Tau Alpha

Kappa Tau Alpha is the national honor society for students majoring in journalism and mass communications. It was founded 110 years ago (in 1910), and the University of Kansas chapter was established in 1967, and named for longtime faculty member Elmer Beth. Admission to the society is based on academic merit. These students were nominated to join Kappa Tau Alpha because their grade point averages rank in the top ten percent of our senior class. Emma Bascom and Sheyenne Denton share this year’s Top Scholar award for earning the highest GPAs in the senior class.
