Economics students invited to Join Phi Beta Kappa
The following undergraduates from the Department of Economics have been selected as members in course to receive an invitation to join Phi Beta Kappa:
- Saraf Wamia Sadique
- Lukas Georg Seifert
- Rody Momtaz Younis
Phi Beta Kappa is the nation's oldest academic honor society (founded December 5, 1776); it celebrates and advocates excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. It is a highly selective honor: Only 10% of universities are awarded a Phi Beta Kappa chapter and no school may elect more than 10 percent of a graduating class. About one college senior out of 100 nationwide will be invited to join Phi Beta Kappa each year.
The honor of becoming a member in course reflects the students' considerable dedication and accomplishments and also those of the educational environment that facilitated the students' development.
