Student Honors

Phi Beta Kappa

Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious honor society. To be inducted a student must have accomplishments that extend well beyond the achievement of a very high grade point average. An inductee has exhibited expertise in advanced study of a foreign language, breadth of course work in multiple areas of the liberal arts, including proficiency in mathematics, and a major (or second major) in a traditional “academic” (that is, non-applied and non-professional) liberal arts discipline.
