The Florida Tech chapter of the Phi Kappa Phi was recently recognized with one of the honor society’s highest honors, the Circle of Excellence Gold Award.
The Circle of Excellence Chapter Awards program recognizes chapters for work in promoting excellence on the local campus and engaging the community of scholars each year. The awards utilize data submitted by the chapter to the national office regarding yearly activities and initiation efforts.
Chapters achieving the Gold Circle of Excellence status have earned a score of 95-99 and received a $200 cash award. Florida Tech was one of just 23 universities around the country to win the 2021-22 Circle of Excellence Gold Award.
