Manchester, Conn. (May 16, 2018) — For the Spring 2018 term, more than 125 MCC students were inducted into Phi Theta Kappa, the oldest and largest international honor society serving two-year colleges.
Phi Theta Kappa recognizes the academic achievement of associate degree students. The purpose of the MCC-based Alpha Upsilon Alpha chapter is to promote scholarships, develop leadership and service, and cultivate fellowship among qualified students at the college. To be invited to join, a student must be currently enrolled, have accumulated 12 semester hours at MCC, have achieved a minimum GPA of 3.5 and adhere to the college code of conduct.
Membership in Phi Theta Kappa offers students opportunities for leadership, fellowship, scholarship and community service, as well as providing an intellectual climate for continued academic excellence.
Phi Theta Kappa has recognized academic excellence in the two-year college since 1918. Membership is based primarily upon academic achievement. Invitation to membership may be extended only by the local chapter at the institution in which the student is enrolled.
