“Phi Theta Kappa provides opportunities for students to develop as scholars and leaders,” said Lashawna Powers, social science instructor and PTK advisor. “Our members embody the Norse tradition through their perseverance, community engagement and service.”
During the last year, Mu Chapter assisted the LEAD Agency and NEO science students in efforts to clean up Tar Creek. They volunteered at the LEAD Agency’s Rainfall Management Garden and researched stress levels in college students.
The research project led to a partnership with the NEO Success Center to have a virtual reality room at Food for Finals, where 64 percent of participating students reported lower stress levels after playing a virtual reality game.
