Phi Theta Kappa Beta Nu Honor Society is welcoming new members to join its team.
English Professor Jane Focht-Hansen, an adviser to Phi Theta Kappa, said the goal for this semester is 75 new students.
The first orientation session for new members was scheduled for Wednesday, but two more sessions are this week at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday and 12:15 p.m. Wednesday in Room 241 of Nail Technical Center.
To qualify, a student must:
• be enrolled in a minimum of six hours of academic work at a regionally accredited institution,
• have completed at least 12 hours of coursework to be applied to an associate degree,
• have maintained an overall grade-point average of 3.5,
• and adhere to the moral code of the society.
The induction ceremony will be in October.
Students unable to attend the orientations will have an opportunity to join the organization.
“Submit a transcript and we will get back to you as soon as possible,” Focht-Hansen said.
“It’s $95 to join the organization, but the benefits far outweigh the entry fee with thousands of dollars offered in scholarships and financial aid,” mortuary science Professor Mary Mena said.
