ATTENTION PTK GRADUATING STUDENTS
Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) members that are graduating and walking across the stage at Commencement (graduation): Please order your PTK graduation regalia! Visit the Phi Theta Kappa Store and purchase the GOLDHonors Stole” and “Honors Cords.” Having these regalia on during the ceremony not only distinguishes you as an honor student and PTK member, but you’ll also be more visible to your friends/family in the audience!

Thanks!

Psychology Instructor and Phi Theta Kappa Advisor
