Students are considered for election to Phi Beta Kappa on the basis of scholarly achievements in the liberal arts and sciences, broad cultural interests and good character. Students exemplifying the qualities and intellectual pursuits of Phi Beta Kappa are invited to join the society during the spring of their senior year, but a small number of outstanding members of the junior class may also be invited. The members are inducted during a special initiation ceremony and dinner on campus in the spring.
