Seventy-one Lafayette students have been invited this spring to join The Phi Beta Kappa Society, the oldest and most respected undergraduate honors organization in the United States. Founded in 1776, Phi Beta Kappa fosters and recognizes excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. Outstanding students from all curricula are eligible for election as juniors or seniors.

If all join, the new members will include 48 seniors and 23 juniors. They will be recognized along with more than 100 students receiving academic awards and prizes at the annual All-College Honors Convocation 2 p.m. Sunday, April 30, at the Williams Center for the Arts.

This would bring to 105 the total number of current Lafayette students in Phi Beta Kappa, including 34 seniors invited to join as juniors last spring.
