One hundred and nine seniors were elected to the University’s chapter of Phi Beta Kappa on April 22, wrote Chapter Administrator Mary Jo Foley in an email to The Herald.

Phi Beta Kappa is the “oldest and most prestigious academic honors organization” in the United States, Foley wrote. The University’s Chapter is the seventh oldest in the nation.

Students are elected to the organization on the basis of exceptional academic performance, strength of course load and grades, according to the election procedures posted on the University’s website. Rhode Island Alpha 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. Current seniors who were elected as juniors served as electors for the rest of their class. No more than one-sixth of any graduating class may be elected to the organization.
