Phi Theta Kappa welcomes dectet of MCC students
October 13, 2012 by Mark
Ten students from Manchester Community College (MCC)were recently granted the most prestigious international award that a young student could hope for – membership into the Phi Theta Kappa honor society. The MCC students were recognized for their outstanding achievements – a tradition that has been ongoing since 1918.
Students must achieve a grade point average of 3.75 or higher to be considered for membership and also have earned 12 credit hours at Manchester Community College. Based solely on academic achievement, MCC must extend the invitation to the deserving students before Phi Theta Kappa will consider it.
Colleges like MCC want to encourage students to achieve academic brilliance as often as possible. Informative flyer printing including the names of the 10 inductees, the history of the Phi Theta Kappa society, and the membership criteria would be an excellent promotional tool for Manchester Community College to encourage students to achieve this goal. Print companies could also work with both organizations to create a promotional toolkit that effectively outlines the advantages that membership in Phi Theta kappa can give, such as studying in a prestigious academic environment that encourages fellowship, scholarship, leadership, and community service.
MCC offers over 60 programs and guaranteed admission to several universities when the proper courses and research have been completed. The institution boasts small classes, flexible schedules, new facilities, and faculty with both academic credentials and on-the-job experience. Phi Theta Kappa is the only acclaimed honor society available to colleges that have two-year programs.
