Congratulations to CSN’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter! I am proud to announce the nation’s largest community college honor society has designated CSN’s organization a Five Star Chapter, the highest level of distinction.
The designation recognizes the college’s chapter for its progress in meeting student engagement and community service goals. CSN will also receive a Five Star Chapter Development Plan, which will serve as a blue print to improve student engagement on campus and further strength the college’s chapter.
Only 13 out of 98 college chapters in the Nevada-California regional district have attained Five Star status.
This is a remarkable testament to the hard work and dedication of our Phi Theta Kappa students and CSN English Professor Bruno Rhodes, who has served as one of the finest chapter advisers in the nation. Together they have put in countless hours to improve our community and attain academic excellence. This chapter is a great asset to our community and CSN students.
CSN’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter is one of the largest in the nation with over 700 members, who provide hundreds of hours of community service each year to Southern Nevada. Phi Theta Kappa membership is available to all students that have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 and completed a minimum of 12 college-level units at CSN. Members have access to scholarships, along with leadership, fellowship and service opportunities. For more information about membership benefits visit www.ptk.org.
Again, congratulations to our PTK students and to Professor Rhodes!
