The University of Rochester’s newest inductees into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society include 120 seniors and 20 juniors. Another 16 students were elected as juniors last spring.

Founded in 1776, Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s oldest academic honor society. Membership is by invitation only, and students are selected by faculty members who are also members of the society.

The University’s Phi Beta Kappa chapter, Iota of New York, 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.

Here are the University’s newest Phi Beta Kappa members:
