Become a member today!
Why would you want to become a member of Phi Theta Kappa?
First of all there is the recognition you receive for your hard work at Mt. Hood Community College. That includes recognition at graduation and regalia that you can wear that signifies your academic achievement.
Second there are the millions in scholarships that you become eligible for that are only for Phi Theta Kappa members. Some are specific to a college or university, some are specific to a program, and some are open-ended and can be used at just about any school for any program. We have members who are graduating this year who have been awarded scholarships at universities just because they were PTK members - they didn't even have to apply for them.
And last there are the extra benefits and discounts you receive for being a member. There is College Fish, which is an online tool to help match you with four year schools and scholarships. There is Competitive Edge, which is an online personal and professional development tool. And then there are all the discounts you receive, such as on insurance through Geico, cell phone service with T-Mobile, and more. You can learn more about these discounts on the Phi Theta Kappa web site.
If you would like to learn more about Rho Theta, and Phi Theta Kappa please check out PTK 101, stop by our office, or send us an email. Deadline for membership for Fall Term 2014 is Wednesday, December 3.

Check out College Fish and Competitive Edge
These are two services provided by Phi Theta Kappa to help you locate four year schools, scholarships, and to improve your professional skills. Both are free to all Phi Theta Kappa members.
College Fish lets you view schools, see what scholarships are available specifically for PTK members, and more. The system helps you to keep track of important milestones such as when you should visit campuses, narrow down your choices, etc. It also allows you to find what scholarships are available specifically for Phi Theta Kappa members.
Competitive Edge goes through a whole host of activities to help you to build your resume, put together essays that could be used on college and scholarship applications, and more. It's a great tool for professional development. Once you complete the five levels, this achievement will be added to the recommendation letter that you can get from Phi Theta Kappa.
