Did you know that 508 of our students have received invitations to join Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society? While a number of these students will accept their invitation to join, many others will not. Students are often not aware of the countless benefits of Phi Theta Kappa membership, and thus choose not to join. In some cases, students believe that Phi Theta Kappa is a fraternity or a sorority, and as a result, don’t accept our invitation. Other students may be very interested, but believe that they don’t have the time to be a member.
Regardless of the reason, if you are aware of a student who has received an invitation to join, we’d like you to encourage them to attend our orientation to meet our officer team, have their questions answered, and learn what Phi Theta Kappa is all about. An orientation for Phi Theta Kappa will be held this Tuesday, March 25th. It will be held in T-102, and will begin at 1:00. We will also record the orientation, so that interested students may receive this beneficial information (via link or DVD) if they’re not able to attend.
While the benefits are too numerous to list here, members will enjoy a semi-formal induction ceremony and reception on Thursday, April 3rd, starting at 7:00 in the theater. They will also receive notation on their transcript and on their diploma upon graduation. Additionally, members will be enrolled in Collegefish.org, a transfer and college completion planning tool, and will have access to $37 million in members-only scholarships.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know. We also welcome you to attend our ceremony on the 3rd, where we will celebrate the achievement of our students, and enjoy words from our featured speaker, Christine Belongia.
