Phi Beta Kappa
Chartered in 1940, the Phi Beta Kappa, Gamma of Colorado chapter elects a small number of juniors and seniors each year to membership in North America’s oldest and most prestigious academic honor society. Membership is by election only and is based on a high level of academic performance, broad course distribution across the liberal arts and sciences and a sustained, demonstrated commitment to intellectual curiosity and the spirit of a liberal arts education.
There are many additional honor societies open to students at the University. Students should consult with their major advisor or department for information about other honor societies specific to their discipline.
