The Greek initials of Phi Beta Kappa represent the motto â€œLove of learning is the guide of life.â€
Only about 10 percent of the nationâ€™s institutions of higher learning have Phi Beta Kappa chapters?
Only about 10 percent of the arts and sciences graduates of these distinguished institutions are selected for Phi Beta Kappa membership?
Each year, faculty members who themselves were chosen for membership in Phi Beta Kappa at their undergraduate institutions meet and discuss exceptional Kent State students in the liberal arts. Students elected to membership participate in an initiation ceremony each spring (typically near Honors Week). If you have questions concerning eligibility or election to membership in the Nu of Ohio chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, please contact the College of Arts and Sciences at 330-672-2062
