One hundred and four seniors were elected this week to the Rhode Island Alpha chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest undergraduate academic honor society, Chapter Administrator Mary Jo Foley wrote in an email to The Herald.

Since the College of William and Mary founded the first Phi Beta Kappa chapter in 1776, the society has spread to 283 institutions, according to Phi Beta Kappa’s website. Brown became the seventh university to establish a chapter in 1830.

To be eligible for induction, seniors must have completed at least 28 courses in their first seven semesters, earning an A or S with Distinction in at least 23 of those courses, according to the Brown chapter’s website. At least two-fifths of those courses must fall under the arts, humanities, pure mathematics or social sciences.

The number of seniors selected this year is consistent with past years. One hundred and two seniors were inducted in 2013, and 104 seniors were inducted in 2012, The Herald reported at the time.

Undergraduates are inducted into Phi Beta Kappa three times a year, with no more than one-sixth of a graduating class becoming members, according to the Brown chapter’s website. Juniors are selected in February, seniors are selected in April and seniors who transferred to the University as juniors are selected in May.
