Biographical / Historical

Phi Theta Kappa is America's most prestigious scholarly organization for two-year colleges and the largest student organization at Central Piedmont. It is an honor to be invited to join, and we hope that you will become an active member in order to take advantage of everything we have to offer. Once you are invited, Phi Theta Kappa is easy to join, has lifetime membership, and a one-time only membership fee; once you become a member, you keep your membership as long as your GPA meets the requirements. You may be as active in the organization as you like or have time for.

The Central Piedmont Phi Lambda chapter is dedicated to local community service and service to our college community through education and hands-on activities. From scholarships to service and leadership experience, Phi Theta Kappa is a great way to learn the skills that will make you a valuable employee and an asset to your community.
