The Phi Theta Kappa chapter at Lansing Community College meets every other Wednesday to plan events, chat, and discuss ways they can service the community.

Last semester, PTK found ways to bond as a group while also giving back to the Lansing community, according to Club President Kadyn Rohn.

“We held a craft workshop where our chapter members came and helped us make and stuff bears,” Rohn said. “We donated them to Lansing Community College’s Childhood Development Program.

“There was also a month-long recycling drive and a month-long food drive where we donated the goods to the Lansing Refugee Development Center. Both proved to be very successful, and a great way to give back to the capital area community.” 

Rohn said the bear-making event was her favorite.

“Not only was it beneficial to our chapter projects, but it was also beneficial for us officers, the members and advisers,” Rohn said. “Given that it was around the holidays, we watched holiday-themed baking shows and, all in all, it was a very fun time for everyone involved. It was a great way to connect with one another.”

For the spring semester, PTK plans include participating in service projects that can better help the Lansing community.

The members will also be hosting their formal induction ceremony later in the semester.

The service projects, unless advised otherwise, are open for LCC students and faculty to participate in, as well as the biweekly meetings.

Their next PTK meeting will be held from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Student Life/Adult Resource Center and over WebEx on Wednesday, Feb. 22.

For future events, PTK members said they would love to work with the athletic department at LCC. 

“As a chapter, we have expressed interest in working with the athletic department before,” Rohn said. “Student involvement is important in sports, so I believe something involving sporting events and PTK would be very fun!”
