Phi Theta Kappa

Beta Xi Xi is MCC’s chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the largest honor society in American higher education, with more than 2 million members and 1,200 chapters located in all 50 states and U.S. territories.

PTK offers students opportunities to enhance their education, career and college path, networks, and life during and post-college through the four Hallmarks: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Fellowship. There are opportunities for scholarships, career networking, etc. for PTK alumni as well.

To provide more opportunities for members at lower costs, Beta Xi Xi members host various fundraisers. Currently, we are running a wreath sale fundraiser. To learn more and/or purchase a wreath or other festive swag, go to: All orders must be placed by November 9, 2017 and orders will be shipped directly to your home. Thank you for your support!
