Phi Beta Kappa inducts 99 seniors

Ninety-nine members of the Class of 2016 were elected to the Rhode Island chapter of Phi Beta Kappa April 20, Chapter Administrator Mary Jo Foley wrote in an email to The Herald.

Phi Beta Kappa’s Brown chapter was founded in 1830 and is the seventh oldest in the nation. The organization “encourages intellectual distinction among undergraduates by recognizing outstanding academic accomplishment in the course of a broad liberal education,” according to the University’s website.

To be eligible for election, seniors must have completed at least 28 courses in their seven semesters and achieved a minimum of 23 grades of A or S with distinction. Students must earn an additional A or S with distinction for every C they get. Students who studied abroad needed to earn a lower minimum number of grades of A or S with distinction that varied based on the number of semesters they studied abroad.
