With friends and family in attendance, 127 Skyline College students, 105 Cañada College students, and 85 CSM students were inducted into their college chapters of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society for 2016-2017.
It is the tradition for the three SMCCCD Phi Theta Kappa chapters to rotate hosting the induction. On April 29, Beta Xi Eta of CSM hosted the Induction Ceremony for new members at CSM. Professor Bruce Maule gave the keynote address. Mr. Maule talked to students about playing to their strengths when choosing a major, transfer school, and career.
