Lambda Pi Eta

Lambda Pi Eta is the Communication Studies honor society of the National Communication Association.  The national undergraduate communication studies honor society, Lambda Pi Eta (LPH), was established at K-State in 2006.  At Kansas State University, Lambda Pi Eta works hard to bring an air of respect and esteem to the Communication Department. Members of Lambda Pi Eta work hard to promote and establish the importance of Communication.

Mock Trial

Mock Trial offers an opportunity for aspiring attorneys and aspiring actors to form teams and prepare to try cases against other universities from across the country. Mock trial is a great activity for preparing students to think critically, communicate effectively, and work in a team.
