One of the things we hear most from members is they wished they would have gotten involved on campus or with events sooner than they did. Attend our upcoming Beta Rho Zeta chapter events and PTK Wisconsin Region activities to

  • have fun and make friends
  • grow your leadership and success skills
  • enhance your resume
  • engage in personal discovery
  • give back to the community
  • learn more about your membership benefits

Most of our regularly scheduled BRZ chapter events take place on Tuesdays at 4:00 p.m. at the Wausau campus and are available virtually live in Zoom! Many of the events are simply drop in while a few do ask for registration so we can plan for supplies, snacks, etc.

For security purposes, Zoom links will be shared in the BRZ Chapter of PTK Canvas course the day prior or day of the event. They’ll also be sent out with any registration links. You’re encouraged to stay tuned to the Announcements in the Canvas course for the most current updates.
