Sigma Iota Rho - Zeta Chapter

Sigma Iota Rho Crest

Sigma Iota Rho- International Studies Honor Society

Sigma Iota Rho, Zeta Chapter at Texas State is an organization that brings diverse thinkers and students together to better understand our increasingly globalized society. It is our wish to work with students to maximize their academic success by creating a community of peers in which students can discuss and debate with one another. SIR at Texas State also looks to better individual members through participation in our debates, panel presentations, and group discussions. We highly encourage all International Studies students to become a member and active participant in Sigma Iota Rho during their time at Texas State.
