Administrative History

Local campus clubs and organizations for students with common interest, as well as chapters of national honor societies hold a large place on campus. The local clubs link students to each other, while the national honor societies link BYU with the academic world and increasing its reputation with other schools. Tau Kappa Alpha, a national debating society, was the first national society on campus, followed by Theta Alpha Phi, Dramatics; Alpha Delta, commerce; Gamma Phi Omicron, home economics; and Alpha Kappa Psi.
