Phi Beta Kappa inducts new members

The program for the April 17 dinner and ceremony, which was to include an address by Frederick Lawrence, secretary/CEO of The Phi Beta Kappa Society, was shifted to an online platform where students and families can access video remarks by President Book and Frederick Lawrence.

Fifty-nine Elon University students were inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, the oldest and often considered the nation’s most prestigious honor society, during an April 17 virtual program where Frederick Lawrence, secretary/CEO of The Phi Beta Kappa Society, and President Connie Book offered congratulatory remarks.

Phi Beta Kappa has established chapters at 290 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.
