Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) students have developed their annual, research-based project known as the Honors in Action Project. PTK officers worked with the Great Discussions Lecture Series and many campus partners to develop a one-day Success Summit scheduled for Friday, November 16 on the Somerset North Campus. 

The event grew out of Somerset Community College’s (SCC) PTK officers' desire to promote student success.  There will be opportunities to learn from and network with community leaders from a variety of fields.  SCC is excited to have guest speaker, Brian Simmons.
