Phi Kappa Phi honor society inducts 31 members at FMU

Phi Kappa Phi, a national honor society designed to recognize and cultivate excellence in students and faculty, inducted 31 members into its Francis Marion University chapter, Nov. 28. Two were faculty members and 29 were students. The initiation ceremony was held in Lowrimore Auditorium.

Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine, Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest, largest and most selective all-discipline honor society. The society has chapters on nearly 300 campuses in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Philippines.

Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors, having at least 72 semester hours, are eligible for membership.
