Chapman University has joined the ranks of elite U.S. colleges and universities with the rare distinction of being selected for membership in Phi Beta Kappa Honor, the oldest and most prestigious honor society in the country. On Thursday, April 18, at 4:30 p.m. at the Fish Interfaith Center the Psi Chapter of California Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society will be installed and select students will be inducted as members.
In 2018, following a lengthy and rigorous application process, Chapman University was granted a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa—a claim less than 10 percent of colleges and universities can make.
To be a Phi Beta Kappa member, a student must have a top GPA and meet the stringent national requirements in mathematics, foreign languages, conduct/character and breadth and depth in the liberal arts and sciences. These students are counted as the top 10 percent of the University’s undergraduate liberal arts and science students and are granted lifetime membership.
The induction and installation ceremony will be in Wallace All Faiths Chapel of the Fish Interfaith Center. Current members of the Psi Chapter of California will preside at the ceremony, and Jack Horner, Chapman University lecturer and presidential fellow, will be the guest speaker. Chapman President Danielle Struppa and Provost Glenn Pfeiffer will offer remarks.
