Honor society hosts sneak-peak into the PKP world

The honor society of Phi Kappa Phi at California State University, Stanislaus is an organization that strives to recognize and encourage students who have achieved academic excellence.
Membership into Phi Kappa Phi requires nomination, approval and other distinct conditions. The society invites the top 7.5 percent of juniors and the seniors and graduate students in the top 10 percent of their major to join.
Phi Kappa Phi undergraduate and graduate members are eligible for scholarships at the chapter and national level.
Phi Kappa Phi Week, hosted by the honor society, consists of three major events throughout the week.
“Phi Kappa Phi week is all about giving students and university a sneak peek into the PKP world!” Kayla Reeder, Phi Kappa Phi member, said.
On April 30, Phi Kappa Phi hosted “Etiquette in the 21st century – Use It or Lose It Opportunities” featuring Leann Alemano-Johnson as the speaker of the event. Aleano-Johnson, author, educator, TV host and trainer informed audience members about graduate school and career-marketable traits.
Today, actor Dan Gately will shed light on his portrayal of Macbeth in the Shakespeare Under the Stars production. Gately will speak of the technicalities of an outdoor production.
This will take place in the Studio Theatre from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
Friday, Phi Kappa Phi week will finish off with an initiation ceremony for new members. Families of the honored students are invited to be a part of this event.
“This week is honoring all of the new initiates, as well as celebrating and recognizing these students who have gone above, and truly proven excellence within their field of study,” Reeder said.
Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest and largest honor society. Many faculty members are associated with the honor society of Phi Kappa Phi.
“Being a member of this Honor Society allows you to network and meet many brilliant and unique individuals who you may not have met otherwise!” Reeder said.
