Hey all,

This is the first post for PTK Theta Chi so I thought I would tell you a little about our organization.  We are a chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society which was founded in 1918.  PTK’s Mission is to “recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and provide opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in honors, leadership, service and fellowship programming.”  There are more than 1200 chapters located in all 50 states as well as in other countries around the world. 

Our chapter is called Theta Chi, and it was established in 1956.  There are also other chapters located on the Warrington Campus (Beta Alpha Psi) and Milton Campus (Beta Beta Gamma).

To become a member you must have a 3.5 GPA or higher, have completed 12 credit hours at PJC, and be enrolled in an AA/AS program at PJC either part-time, full-time, or dual enrolled.

There are many great advantages to joining including travel opportunities where you will meet students from around the world, improvement of resume, and involvement in many fun activities.
