MANHATTAN — The Kansas Gamma chapter of Tau Beta Pi at Kansas State University has initiated 16 new members for the spring 2022 semester.

Tau Beta Pi is a national engineering honor society that celebrates scholastic excellence and reputable character. The Kansas Gamma chapter seeks students in the Kansas State University Carl R. Ice College of Engineering who are high-achieving both inside and outside of the classroom. Every year, Tau Beta Pi participates in various community service activities in Manhattan, including maintenance of KS Hill and highway cleanup on Tuttle Creek Boulevard. Tau Beta Pi believes in the importance of service and leadership, and these events help us to lead by example in our college and community.
