Tau Sigma

What is Tau Sigma?

Tau Sigma is a National Honor Society and a registered Student Organization at Kent State University which aims to recognize transfer students and their academic achievements. Not only does this include transfer students here at Kent Campus, but also includes those who attend classes at KSU's regional campuses. This website's purpose is to help inform current and prospective members of Tau Sigma of organizational events, as well as serve as a resource for relevant information and contacts.

Visit Tau Sigma's National website for more information about the organization.
