About KTA
Kappa Tau Alpha is a college honor society that recognizes academic excellence and promotes scholarship in journalism and mass communications. It is the seventh oldest of all college honor societies, founded 104 years ago.

It is the only national honor society in journalism/mass communications recognized by the Association of College Honor Societies.

Membership must be earned by excellence in academic work at one of the colleges and universities that have chapters. Selection for membership is a mark of highest distinction and honor.

The emblem of Kappa Tau Alpha is the key, the oldest symbol of knowledge and communications. The Greek leters 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.
