College Invites Students to Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society

Phi Beta Kappa Key

Phi Beta Kappa key

The State University of New York at Geneseo has invited more than 100 students into the college’s chapter of Phi Beta Kappa this spring, prompted by their recent election by faculty members of the college’s chapter. Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s oldest and most widely known academic honor society. Students from both the junior and senior classes are selected each spring for membership into the organization.

About 10 percent of the nation’s institutions of higher learning have a Phi Beta Kappa chapter. Geneseo is currently the only comprehensive undergraduate SUNY college with a chapter, which was established in 2004.

"Geneseo’s Phi Beta Kappa chapter is thrilled to offer so many students membership this year," says Doug Baldwin, past president of Geneseo's Phi Beta Kappa chapter and professor of mathematics. "Through their passion for learning, these students have enriched their own lives and those of the people around them in innumerable ways; they truly demonstrate the power of a liberal education. Recognizing them with membership celebrates their excellence, and that of the entire College and its community."
