Phi Theta Kappa

Phi Theta Kappa
Established by Missouri two-year college presidents in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society serves to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students. Today, Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 1.3 million members and 1,200 chapters located in the United States and other countries around the world. In 1929, the American Association of Community Colleges recognized Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges.

Beta Xi Eta
The chapter, here at College of San Mateo, was chartered in April of 2005. Since our charter, we have created numerous meaningful projects and paved the way for students to move on to prestigious Universities, such as: UC Berkeley, Stanford, UCLA, and many more. Our chapter reached the Five-star Chapter rating for the first time in 2012.
