Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is the international honor society of two-year colleges and academic programs. Founded in 1910 at Stephens College in Columbia, Mo., PTK was originally called Kappa Phi Omicron and admitted only women. In 1918, the society was renamed and modeled after Phi Beta Kappa and, in 1924, started allowing anyone to join. In 1929, PTK became the official honor society of two-year colleges. At first, membership was conferred upon graduation, but with the growth of community colleges in the 1960s, PTK expanded and now inducts students at any point in their college career and offers programs and opportunities to members. PTK has more than two million members in 1,250 chapters. Students must have a GPA of at least 3.5 to join.

Hocking College has three PTK chapters. For more information, please contact the appropriate campus representative.
