An MTSU student organization that promotes educational success is marking its 30th anniversary on campus.
Members of The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi enjoyed cake and soft drinks Wednesday, Dec. 6, to celebrate the 1987 establishment of the MTSU chapter.
“Phi Kappa Phi is the most prestigious all-discipline honor society,” said Dr. Dianna Rust, chapter president and an associate professor of university studies.
“At MTSU, I think it has provided our students an outlet for networking … but also with an opportunity to win scholarships, grants and study-abroad grants.”
Founded in 1897, Phi Kappa Phi has chapters at more than 300 select colleges and universities in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Philippines. The society inducts approximately 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni each year.
Membership is by invitation only to seniors and graduate students who rank in the top 10 percent of their class and juniors who rank in the top 7.5 percent of their class.
