Phi Theta Kappa (PTK)
Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society of two-year colleges. Students are invited to join after attaining an overall 3.5 GPA in 12 hours of college credit, but may also participate in activities as provisional members until they become eligible for membership. Active members have opportunities to develop leadership skills, participate in academic enrichment activities, and develop friendships with fellow Phi Theta Kappa members from all over the country. Membership also qualifies students for many transfer scholarships reserved for Phi Theta Kappa members. Kappa Tau, MCC-Longview's chapter, is very active on campus and in the community and has won international recognition for its members and projects.
Rotaract provides an opportunity for young men and women to enhance the knowledge and skills that will assist them in their personal development, to address the physical and social needs of their communities, and to promote better relations between all people worldwide through a framework of friendship and service.

The Longview True Colors club brings lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) students and straight allies together to meet new people, hang out and have fun in a safe and supportive environment. We coordinate both social and educational programs to foster a positive and realistic image of the LGBTQ community, and to ensure all students at MCC-Longview experience a welcoming and affirming learning environment. True Colors brings together students of different sexual and gender identities to fight homophobia on campus and in the community. By raising awareness of different sexual and gender identities, linking homophobia with other oppressions and advocating for equal treatment for all students, our organization will help create a school environment free of homophobic, sexual, verbal, and physical harassment.
