Four juniors, 32 seniors are inducted into Phi Beta Kappa

March 26, 2012

McDaniel College inducted four juniors and 32 graduating seniors March 25 into McDaniel's Delta of Maryland Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. President Roger Casey, who holds a membership in the prestigious national honor society from Furman University where he earned his baccalaureate, addressed the College’s newest Phi Beta Kappa members.

For the third year, the Delta Chapter chose to elect a limited number of juniors to the national honor society – as is standard practice among many other chapters – to establish a continuing Phi Beta Kappa presence on campus. Founded in 1776, Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s oldest academic honor society.  It has chapters at 280 colleges and universities, and more than 600,000 members.
