Elon University's newest Phi Beta Kappa inductees

Fifty-three Elon University students were inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, the oldest and often considered the nation’s most prestigious honor society, during a March 27 dinner and ceremony where Peter Felten, assistant provost, executive director for the Center for Engaged Learning and professor of history, served as the keynote speaker, and visiting scholar Daniel Rodgers, the Henry Charles Lea Professor of History Emeritus at Princeton University, made congratulatory remarks.

Phi Beta Kappa has established chapters at 286 colleges and universities in the United States, representing only 10 percent of the nation’s institutions of higher learning. Each year, the top 10 percent of arts and sciences graduates at these institutions are selected for membership. Elon’s Eta Chapter of North Carolina was installed on April 13, 2010.
