Phi Theta Kappa
The Theta Lambda Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa enters its 62nd year on the Andrew College campus this Fall 2015. The chapter has consistently followed the ideals of Phi Theta Kappa – Wisdom, Aspiration and Purity – through the years with projects and programming.
Offices and students stayed busy in 2014-2015. Fall semester saw two annual Trick or Read Day when all the Randolph County Elementary School and the Pataula Charter Academy first graders came to the campus for a book reading and trick or treating. Four officers attended the State PTK Leadership Convention at Darton College in Albany. The chapter participated in the annual Alumni Homecoming Parade and other Homecoming activities. The chapter instituted a Textbook Swap and Shop at the end of the fall semester.
Seminar Day 2015 was a huge success with Dr. Daniel J. D’Amico speaking on Economic Freedom and Human Welfare. Following the Seminar Day, the Spring Induction ceremony was held at The McDonald House in the evening. By Honors Day, the Theta Lambda members had finished the Community College Completion Pledge with 91 percent of the student body pledging to complete a two-year college degree. In April, members started preparing a Community Garden for planting in the fall.
Theta Lambda members continue to take on new challenges and to initiate new ideas on the Andrew College campus.
Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honorary society for two-year colleges in the nation with over two million members. Over 1300 chapters have been chartered within the United States itself. Over 100,000 members are inducted annually.
