Join GBC’s Beta Beta Epsilon chapter in celebrating Phi Theta Kappa Awareness Week, February 8 thru 12. If you ever wanted to know more about what PTK is and how it can benefit you, this is the perfect opportunity.
Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is an international honor society of two-year colleges, and two-year academic programs. It's the largest honor society in American higher education, with more than 1.5 million members and 1,200 chapters located in all 50 states and abroad. PTK is also one of the largest collegiate honors societies world-wide.
Phi Theta Kappa provides an intellectual climate for the exchange of ideas, ideals, opportunities for the development of leadership and service, lively fellowship of scholars, and stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.
Phi Theta Kappa is built on four pillars, or hallmarks that each chapter strives to capture in each of its activities:
Phi Theta Kappa offers its members scholarship, leadership, fellowship, and service opportunities. Members are acknowledged for their outstanding academic achievement at graduation as well as having their membership notated on their transcripts and diploma.
Membership in Phi Theta Kappa is by invitation only. All eligible students receive an invitation to join once each semester. Invitations are sent out the semester following when criteria are met.
