Phi Theta Kappa was established in 1918 to recognize and encourage scholarship among associate degree students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa provides an opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate to exchange ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.
The Alpha Theta Upsilon chapter of Phi Theta Kappa serves both the Daniel and Christanna Campuses of Southside Virginia Community College.
Membership is extended by invitation. To be considered for membership a student must (1) be enrolled in a two-year college, (2) have accumulated 12 semester credit hours, (3) have achieved a cumulative grade-point average of not less than 3.2, (4) have established academic excellence as judged by faculty, and (5) be of good moral character and possess recognized qualities of citizenship.
