One hundred and two members of the class of 2018 were elected to the University’s Phi Beta Kappa Society April 10, wrote Chapter Administrator Mary Jo Foley in an e-mail to The Herald.

Phi Beta Kappa is the “oldest and most prestigious academic honors organization” in the United States, Foley wrote. The society has 286 chapters at colleges and universities nationwide. Founded in 1830, the University’s Rhode Island Alpha Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa is the seventh oldest in the nation, she added.

Students are elected to the organization on the basis of exceptional academic performance in “the course of a broad liberal education,” according to the election procedures posted on the University’s website. The chapter holds three elections each year: one in February to elect juniors, one in April to elect seniors and another in May to elect seniors who transferred to the University as juniors. No more than one-sixth of any graduating class may be elected to the organization, according to the website.
