The Beta Theta Lambda Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society at Merritt College was charted in April 1999. Since that time 767 students have accepted membership (330 current members and 437 alumni – Fall 2019) into this prestigious organization. Phi Theta Kappa’s hallmarks are: Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship. Its mission is to recognize students for their outstanding academic achievements and to provide opportunities for service and leadership in their communities and around the globe. Students who accept the invitation to membership receive access to scholarships and other benefits not open to other students in the two-year college.
