Santa Barbara City College’s chapter of Phi Theta Kappa recently inducted 160 new members into the international honor society.  

Membership currently stands at approximately 400 students.  

PTK recognizes academic achievement and provides opportunities for students at community colleges to participate in honors, leadership and service activities for the community.

To join, students must have taken at least 12.0 units and earn a GPA of 3.5 or higher.  

PTK members at SBCC are volunteering this year with such nonprofit groups as Habitat for Humanity and Casa Esperanza Homeless Center in Santa Barbara. 

The chapter will participate in a coastal cleanup in Isla Vista at the end of October.

— Joan Galvan is the public information officer for Santa Barbara City College.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
