Who we are

Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is the official international honor society of two-year colleges. 

The mission of Phi Theta Kappa is twofold: to recognize and encourage the academic achievements of two-year college students, and to provide opportunities for individual growth through participation in scholarship, leadership, fellowship, and service.

Onondaga Community College's chapter is Alpha Sigma Zeta. The award-winning chapter is student-run with an active leadership team.
