Alpha Gamma Alpha Chapter

Phi Theta Kappa is the oldest and most prestigious honor society serving two-year colleges with an approximate membership of 3 million individuals across the United States and worldwide. Its purpose is to recognize and encourage academic excellence among students of two-year colleges. It also aims to promote individual growth through programs that provide leadership training, continual scholarship, fellowship among scholars, and service to the community.

All Pikes Peak Community College students are invited to attend our general meetings and participate in our local events. Alpha Gamma Alpha would like to invite all qualified individuals to join Phi Theta Kappa and enjoy the privileges that come with membership. Click here for a list of membership benefits.
