Rho Upsilon Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa

Rho Upsilon is the chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at Community College of Philadelphia.

Mission: The mission of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize academic achievement of college students and to provide opportunities for them to grow as scholars and leaders.

Things like these cheer us up when we have to stay home and are social distancing. Rho Up!

[03/28/20]   Heading into the online orbit in about an hour and a half for the #MSR33live!

We are so proud to announce...

With a new semester come new faces. We want to meet you and hear if you are interested in becoming a part of the Rho Upsilon officer team. DM us for more information. Thanks and happy Friday.

Come out and vote today! Oh yeah!

[09/26/19]   It is PTK Awareness week and I want to use this opportunity to promote our mission at the Community College of Philadelphia (CCP).
Now, if you asked our "mother," she would say that "the mission of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize academic achievement of college students and to provide opportunities for them to grow as scholars and leaders" (ptk.org).
We are the chapter Rho Upsilon and we fully support what she says. We have a mentoring program here at CCP and invite you to get in touch with us if you need any advice, whether that is about your personal life or because you are struggling here at the college. Rho Up is a family and we are there for you.
We are also currently working on a lot of film screenings and panel discussion to promote #CCPvotes and to create an awareness of current issues in the CCP and Philadelphia community.
Stay tuned for more information on our Instagram and here on Facebook. Reach out to us via message here or call us at 215 - 751 8100.

Weโ€™re so excited to find out what that is all about...

Big news coming tomorrow, August 1! Any ideas of what it could be?

Hint: ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ผ๐Ÿ‘”๐Ÿ’ผ๐Ÿข

Whatโ€™s the point? Whatโ€™s the meaning? Why am I doing this? Think deep, think purposefully. So what?

Ask yourself why are you here today. Ask yourself: so what?
What makes you do what you do? What is the purpose?

So what?

Rhooooooo Up!
