Thirty-nine Plan II Honors Majors Elected to Phi Beta Kappa, Fall 2008

Posted: November 25, 2008

The University of Texas at Austin Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa has recently sent out invitations of membership to eligible students for Fall 2008. Plan II Honors congratulates the thirty-nine Plan II Honors majors who were recently elected to Phi Beta Kappa at its Spring meeting. Upon joining, they will be inducted into the national honor society at the UT chapter's Fall reception on Sunday, Dec. 7, in the Texas Union Ballroom, when Associate Dean Richard Flores will be the keynote speaker.

Currently students must have a GPA of 3.70 (with less than thirty transfer hours) or a 3.75 (with more than 30 transfer hours) in their graduating year to be eligible to join, or have a GPA of 3.9 in their junior year to be eligible to join. All new inductees are eligible for one of four $500 scholarships in the spring and all new juniors will be eligible for one $2,000 award for assistance in writing their thesis. The membership dues this year are $100. This is a one-time lifetime membership fee which covers all local and national dues. The PBK National Triennial Council will be held here in Austin next October.

Founded in 1776 at the College of William and Mary, Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest honor society in the United States; its three Greek letters translate to "love of learning is the guide of life."
