5 Reasons to join PTK today!

Here are five reasons why I think you should join Phi Theta Kappa the second you get your letter:

1. Money.
When you join PTK, you are able to apply for over $37 million dollars in scholarships that are only available to members. We could pretty much stop here because this alone makes membership worth it.

2. Transfer universities will notice (and want you)
Being in PTK will make you stand out, and will up your chances for scholarships.

3. Rock star conventions
Being part of Phi Theta Kappa gives you and your chapter a chance to attend the annual international convention (last year, it was in FLORIDA!) The annual convention is unlike anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The best description I’ve ever heard is “a mix between a rock concert and a political rally.” It’s energizing and amazing and, well, you just have to see for yourself.

4. Leadership opportunities
Accepting PTK membership is one thing, but to really get the full benefits, you should get involved. And wow are there some amazing ways to do that!

5. Good friends
Work with a solid group of positive people who wanted to make a difference and do something exciting and meaningful with their lives. You’ll also be amazed at what you can all accomplish together, how you can positively impact your campus, and how you can change the lives of the students around you. Never underestimate the power of surrounding yourself with good people.

Come and enjoy the fun and fellowship of Phi Theta Kappa.

Deadline to apply for general membership: Friday, December 5, 2014
