CLASS students inducted into Phi Beta Kappa

In March, over 70 CLASS students were inducted into the prestigious honor society, Phi Beta Kappa. Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious academic honor society.

Each year, only one college senior in a hundred, nationwide, is invited to join the Phi Beta Kappa Society. Only about 10 percent of the nation's institutions of higher learning have Phi Beta Kappa chapters, and only about 10 percent of the arts and sciences graduates at these distinguished institutions are invited to join.

Each inductee received an engraved gold key, the symbol of the society. By joining Phi Beta Kappa, the new inductees are added to an impressive list of society members including Theodore Roosevelt, W.E.B. Du Bois and Sonia Sotomayor.
