Phi Beta Kappa, the highly esteemed national honor society, has a chapter at the University of Maryland, College Park, of which our own Professor Judith Hallett has been elected President for 2013-2014.
Although students cannot apply for membership in Phi Beta Kappa, they should be aware that in order to be eligible for nomination (by a committee of faculty members), they must fulfill certain academic requirements. If you are an excellent student, be sure to check the requirements at http://www.ugst.umd.edu/pbk.html, and plan to include the mandated breadth of liberal arts and science courses in your academic program.
