Alpha Zeta Eta Finds a New Fundraising Opportunity!

Alpha Zeta Eta Finds a New Fundraising Opportunity!

As the Fall semester begins, the college is brimmed with students navigating their way to their classes. With merciful Professors giving extra window time to enter their classes, the new students and the old alike begin their academic journey. Though this may be experienced at most colleges, here at North Lake College, the story was different. It is the legacy that Phi Theta Kappa’s North Lake College chapter Alpha Zeta Eta, ardently maintains with the Follett Bookstore for the past three years.

Being directly engaged in the community is an integral part of today’s society. Community service involvement builds crucial leadership experience for those who partake in it, and the community benefits through the services provided. Our Chapter, Alpha Zeta Eta, is heavily oriented with service and faithfully serves the community through projects. This summer, we are participating in a service project for the City of Irving and Irving-Las Colinas Rotary Club called Flags Over Irving.

Officer Training Equals Success!

Officer Training Equals Success!

Becoming an officer of Phi Theta Kappa is an important accomplishment and incredible milestone requiring a considerable amount of responsibility. At North Lake College in Irving Texas, our officers attend a 4-day training, hosted by our Texas Region Alumni Association trainers. All the Chapters in the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) are invited to attend this free training where we learn about leadership duties, goal setting, calendar planning, Honors in Action, College Project, and team building, just to name a few. It is a chance to meet new people, make new friends, learn, and bond.
