    I am interested in applying to the Honors Council, Phi Theta Kappa, Philosophy Club, and Student Government Association (SGA). So far I have completed the process of Honors Council, and am now waiting for all my finalized grades at the end of the semester in order to be eligible to apply to Phi Theta Kappa and SGA. As for Philosophy Club, i will need to find out more information in order to be able to apply.
