November 14, 2019
The Blinn College-Bryan Campus chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa national honor society recently inducted 153 students during a ceremony in the Blinn-Bryan Student Center.
Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is recognized as the official honor society for two-year colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges. Founded in 1918, PTK promotes scholarship, leadership, service, and fellowship among its members. To be accepted, students must carry at least a 3.5 grade point average (GPA) with at least 12 transferable hours.
“Membership in this organization reflects the outstanding academic accomplishments of our students and their dedication to success,” Blinn-Bryan PTK Co-Advisor Emily Erdmann said. “Involvement in PTK enhances their abilities to conduct research, think critically, and become active members in their community. PTK members have had the opportunity to highlight Blinn on a national level by holding regional offices and campaigning for national office.”
