The Mu chapter on the NEO campus is very involved. They are committed to serve the campus by providing student manpower to clean up after football games held at the NEO stadium. PTK sponsors the Food-4-Finals event, a tutoring session and breakfast held every semester during finals week to provide instructor/student interaction as students prepare for final exams. Students are currently working on their college and honor’s project that involves finding ways to keep students motivated and prepared to complete their Associate’s Degree or certificate programs.
