Why did you apply for the Council of Students? Membership in Phi Kappa Phi has given me amazing opportunities to grow my leadership skills in the short year that I have been a member. I am currently serving as a Student Vice President for my university’s chapter, and I decided to run for the Council of Students because I wanted to show my appreciation for everything I have gained through this incredible honor society. As a member of the Council of Students I will be able to give back at both the national and local levels.
