Phi Beta Kappa
Lambda of Ohio University
Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most respected academic honor society in the United States. Invitation to membership is a reflection of outstanding academic achievement and shows a commitment to the liberal arts and sciences and to freedom of inquiry and expression.
Phi Beta Kappa has pursued its mission of fostering and recognizing excellence in the liberal arts and sciences since 1776. The Lambda of Ohio Chapter received its charter from the national organization in 1928. Less than 10 percent of graduates from the College of Arts & Sciences and Honors Tutorial College are selected for membership.
The chapter participates in the intellectual life of Ohio University by electing individuals to undergraduate, alumni, and honorary membership, hosting annual lectures by recognized scholars, and the annual awarding of the Thomas M. Wolfe Awards for highest scholastic achievement of a third-year and graduating senior student.
President: Dr. Paul Milazzo
