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.
“Involvement in PTK enhances our students’ abilities to conduct research, think critically, and become active members in their community, which are attributes that benefit them as they embark on careers or continue their studies,” Blinn-Bryan PTK Co-Advisor Shonda Whetstone said.
