Kappa Tau Alpha (KTA)
Kappa Tau Alpha is a college honor society that recognizes academic excellence and promotes scholarship in journalism and mass communication. It is the seventh oldest national honor society, founded at the University of Missouri in 1910 at the world's first school of journalism.
Membership must be earned by excellence in academic work at one of the colleges and universities that have chapters. Kent State is one of 67 chapters nationwide. Selection for membership is a mark of highest distinction and honor. Juniors and seniors must rank in the upper 10 per cent of their class.
The emblem of Kappa Tau Alpha is the key, the oldest symbol of knowledge and communication. The Greek letters mean "The Truth Will Prevail." The letters also suggest three English words: knowledge, truth and accuracy. The Society's colors are light blue, significant of truth, and gold, emblematic of worth and high standards.
