MAnthem’s Arina Davis was recently inducted into the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline collegiate honor society. Davis was introduced to NAU.
Davis is one of approximately 25,000 students, faculty, professional staff, and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year.
Membership is by invitation only and requires the nomination and approval of a Chapter. Only the top 10% of seniors and 7.5% of juniors are eligible for membership. Graduate students in the top 10% of graduate degree applicants may also be eligible, as may faculty, professional staff, and alumni who have achieved academic distinction.
Phi Kappa Phi was founded in 1897 under the leadership of undergraduate student Marcus L. Urann, who wanted to create a different kind of honor society: one that recognizes excellence in all academic disciplines. Today, the society has chapters on more than 325 campuses in the United States, its territories, and the Philippines. Its mission is “to recognize and promote academic excellence in all areas of higher education and to engage the scholarly community in service to others”.
