Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society had a table set up for Saddleback College’s Senior Day on March 20 in the Quad to promote their honor program to students walking by.
Officers of Saddleback’s Beta Epsilon Beta chapter gathered at the table to inform students who are coming to Saddleback College next year about the program.
“Senior students from high school are coming today and they will be here next year,” said Jacob Bettilyon, a 24-year-old international relations student, “so we are here to let them about Phi Theta Kappa and the benefits of the program.”
Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK) is the largest and most prestigious honor society serving two-year colleges around the world. Phi Theta Kappa recognizes and reward high-achieving students and provides scholarships for continued studies as well as community services, leaderships and fellowships. Full-time students who have GPA of 3.5 or higher will receive invitation letters to be the memberships of PTK.
Saddleback’s chapter of Phi Theta Kappa is Beta Epsilon Beta of the international honors society.
“We want the students to know about the program so they can set their goal once they start going to Saddleback,” said Danielle Erwin, president Beta Epsilon Beta chapter of PTK. “We will send the invitations to every students who meet the requirement of Phi Theta Kappa.”
Many students stopped by the booth to get the information and expressed interest in the program.
“It’s a really good organization,” said Tyler Dalmer, a 23-year-old business student who has been a member of Phi Theta Kappa since fall semester. “They have good connection with private colleges and you will get a lot for just a little fee of membership.”
