Phi Theta Kappa

Beta Xi Xi is MCC’s chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK). In 1929, PTK was recognized as the official honor society for two-year colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges. Today, it is the largest honor society in American higher education, with more than 1.3 million members and 1,200 chapters located in 50 United States, U.S. territories, and other countries.

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.
