Phi Kappa Phi Spring Initiation Ceremony

The JSU Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society announces the spring initiation ceremony to be held today - Monday, May 7, 5:00 p.m., in Room 1103 Houston Cole Library. Outstanding juniors, seniors, and graduate students are invited to become members each year. Current members are invited to attend the ceremony.

Membership in the society is by invitation only based on high standards of academic excellence. Phi Kappa Phi's motto is Philosophía Krateítõ Phõtôn, translated from the Greek: "Let the love of learning rule humanity." Its official mission is "to recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others."

Phi Kappa Phi backs up these ideals with the biggest awards program of any academic honor society: over $500,000 annually in national and local scholarships and awards for which JSU faculty and student members are eligible to apply.

For more information on the JSU Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, visit their Web site: JSU Chapter 284 of Phi Kappa Phi.

In addition, there will be a general meeting of current and new Phi Kappa Phi members on Tuesday, May 15, at 4:00 p.m. (location TBA--but please mark your calendars and look for more information very soon).
