Phi Kappa Phi promotes love of learning

Members of the MTSU chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and largest honor society, recently donated books and a bookcase to families in Rutherford County who also are new homeowners thanks to Habitat for Humanity.

Phi Kappa Phi works each year to promote academic excellence and to engage scholars in service to others, often in partnership with other organizations, as part of its outreach to the community.

The MTSU chapter has been recognized as a Chapter of Excellence by the PKP national headquarters located in Baton Rouge, La. The local chapter meets on campus periodically, holds annual initiations and applies for PKP scholarships, grants and fellowships.
