The Alpha Epsilon Phi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa was established at Bergen Community College in 1979. Members of our Chapter participate in a variety of activities inspired by the Society’s Hallmarks: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Fellowship. Our goal is to provide our members with the resources and opportunities which will make their transition to four-year institutions easier. They also gain access to exclusive scholarships and receive preferential attention in their college transfer applications.
