About Beta Gamma Epsilon:

Recognizing and encouraging academic excellence of Stark State students, Beta Gamma Epsilon (Stark State’s Phi Theta Kappa local chapter) helps promote leadership, scholarship, fellowship with each other and service to our community. We are not a fraternity or a sorority. We are an honors society that recognizes student’s leadership and academic leadership.

Since 1929 Phi Theta Kappa has been recognized by the American Association of Community Colleges as the official honor society of the two-year college. We are open to all two-year college students who qualify regardless of academic major.

The benefits of membership in Phi Theta Kappa are many. Each student receives recognition by wearing a gold stole and tassel at graduation. In addition, membership in the society is noted on the student’s transcripts and it is embossed on their diploma. Phi Theta Kappa offers opportunity for leadership growth and personally rewarding participation in community service projects. There is also extensive opportunity for scholarship rewards exclusively for Phi Theta Kappa members.
