Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society for two-year colleges. From www.ptk.org:
"The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa shall be to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa shall provide opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence."
To find this letterbox, go to the campus of Paul Hill. Find the building where Margaret Mead would have felt most at home. One year, the American Ethnological Society held their annual meeting in Portland, Oregon, where the theme was “Rethinking Nature and Culture.” Find the door to the room whose number is the same as this annual meeting’s (1st, 2nd, 48th, etc.)
From that door, walk down at 160 degrees. You will be instructed to stop. Go straight across, until you reach a trail. Turn to 240 degrees and follow it for 15 paces. Turn left, walk 35 paces and left again. Go 45 paces before turning to 270 degrees. Follow this trail until you can see your way out, but do not leave the trees. At the base of the last large maple tree, you will be rewarded with a special honor.
