What exactly is Phi Theta Kappa?
Phi Theta Kappa is the Honor Society for two-year colleges. At the heart of Phi Theta Kappa are the four hallmarks – SCHOLARSHIP, LEADERSHIP, FELLOWSHIP & SERVICE. At CCC, it represents the best and the brightest students, coming together to recognize, appreciate, promote, and foster each other’s academic success. It is okay to brag about the test you nailed, pass on a project because you have to study, or stress if your 4.0 is in jeopardy.
Of course, it is not like we get together and do math. We are active in our chapter, college and community through our service projects like the monthly Community Beautification projects (THE LAST SATURDAY OF EACH MONTH), Climb to Conquer Cancer, bi-annual blood drive and the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl–a-Thon.
We are also tackling two big projects this year. Our Honors in Action Project is an all encompassing project about the ways in which technology limits access and distribution to information. Our College Project is promotion of C4 – the Community College Completion Challenge with a focus on
With upcoming regional events AND International Conventions, there is opportunity to travel, meet fellow Phi Theta Kappa members and broaden your horizons.
There are many benefits to joining Phi Theta Kappa, including but not limited to the recognition and prestige that accompanies your membership. Your membership will kick off with the Induction and Awards Ceremony - the ultimate recognition of your academic achievement. Of course, there is scholarship money - $37 million to be claimed by Phi Theta Kappa members. In the first half of this year, our chapter has earned over $70,000 in scholarships! In addition, Competitive Edge is the personal development program available to Phi Theta Kappa members to help prepare you for life after graduation.
There is a lot to Phi Theta Kappa, but you will take more away from your membership than you put in to it. Take a moment and look around our site or come to one our meetings to see what we are all about.
