Phi Theta Kappa
Phi Theta Kappa is the International Honor Society of the two-year college. It was founded in 1918 to recognize and encourage scholarship amongst students at two-year colleges. Currently, there are more than 1.5 million members worldwide, with close 100,000 new members inducted annually.
Delta's Xi Delta chapter - founded in 1965 - has been awarded at both the regional and international levels. Delta's Xi Delta chapter is a member of the Michigan Region of Phi Theta Kappa.
Why join Phi Theta Kappa?
Phi Theta Kappa students are eligible for scholarships at hundreds of four-year institutions. Besides providing scholarship opportunities (worth more than $36 million at 600+ colleges and universities worldwide as of 2005), Phi Theta Kappa students stay active in various scholarly and fun activities, help raise money for various charitable groups within our community, and have a chance to meet other Phi Theta Kappa students within Delta, within Michigan and from across the world.
Students run Phi Theta Kappa and they take the group in many interesting new directions each semester. We hope that if you are eligible, you will not only consider joining but will become an active part of our group.
