Thirty-four new members initiated into Phi Beta Kappa
Thirty-four undergraduates from nine schools and colleges were initiated into Auburn University’s Gamma of Alabama chapter of Phi Beta Kappa on Thursday, Nov. 3, at the Sunny Slope Annex.
Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s oldest, most prestigious and most selective honor society. The mission of the society is to foster and recognize excellence in the liberal arts and sciences at the leading colleges and universities in the United States (approximately 10% of colleges and universities have a chapter). Founded in 1776 at the College of William and Mary, its members have included seventeen U.S. Presidents, thirty-nine U.S. Supreme Court Justices and more than one hundred and thirty Nobel Laureates, as well as numerous CEOs, artists, non-profit leaders, athletes and authors. Employers from every career field view membership in Phi Beta Kappa as a mark of personal distinction and competitive advantage, and graduate and professional schools similarly recognize induction into the Society as a proven indicator of scholarly potential.
Please join us in congratulating these outstanding students:
