Phi Beta Kappa

Alma College’s chapter of Phi Beta Kappa is one of 8 in Michigan and 280 across the nation.

Phi Beta Kappa was founded in 1776 at the College of William and Mary. Since then it has evolved to become the nation’s leading advocate for the liberal arts and sciences at the undergraduate level.

Election to membership in Phi Beta Kappa is wholly within the discretion of the members of the local chapter. Eligibility guidelines are available from the chapter president, Dr. Kristin Olbertson.
