PTK Recruit Students to ‘Commit to Complete’

Students from the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK)  called on their fellow students to make a vow to complete their studies at Brookdale.  PTK is an advocate of the Community College Completion Challenge (C4) initiative, which provides resources to help and encourage the campus community to complete their associate degrees or certificates.

Members of PTK created and operated a recruiting station in the Bankier Library’s Information Commons. Students were drawn to the eye-catching display with good conversation, baked goods and a t-shirt raffle.

These committed students are no strangers to the Library.  Besides studying and being hard at work in the Library, members of the honor society have constructed displays in the Library foyer and entrance to serve as a constant reminder for students to stay the course, study hard, and complete their degree.

The honor society provides scholarships and “opportunities to develop critical leadership skills, such as problem solving, project planning, team building, effective communication and conflict resolution.”

Phi Theta Kappa is recognized as the official honor society for community colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges. Brookdale’s Alpha Pi Theta chapter of PTK organized and hosted this event.
