2018 Phi Beta Kappa inductees by major.

They will be formally inducted in a noon ceremony on Saturday, May 19 at the Larry and Cindy Bloch Alumni and Advancement Center, 300 East River Road. Wendi Heinzelman, dean of the Hajim School of Engineering, will be the keynote speaker.

Another 16 current seniors were inducted last spring as juniors.

Founded in 1776, Phi Beta Kappa invites for induction the most outstanding students at America’s leading colleges and universities. Membership is by invitation only, and students are selected by faculty members who also are members of the society.

The University’s Phi Beta Kappa chapter was founded in 1887. Members are chosen based on exceptional academic performance and a letter of recommendation from a faculty or staff member. New members are elected each spring by members of the Iota chapter at the recommendation of the nominating committee.

Particularly strong candidates are elected as juniors, the rest as seniors.
