Alpha Omega Nu has been a five-star chapter since 1996. ECC’s chapter also has received the Super Star Award every year since the award was created.

Alpha Omega Nu sponsors a number of service projects annually. On April 5, 25 volunteers came to the Tarboro campus to participate in the group’s spring Adopt-A-Highway cleanup. Thirty-one bags of trash, including recyclables, were gathered.

To be a member of Phi Theta Kappa, students must have completed 12 credit hours in an associate degree program and have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher. Students must then maintain at least a 3.25 grade point average to remain in the group.
