Phi Beta Kappa, Nu of MA Chapter at UMass Amherst

Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest (founded in 1776) and most prestigious academic honor society in the United States recognizing academic excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. UMass Amherst students with excellent records in the liberal arts and sciences may be inducted into the chapter as juniors or seniors. Support for the chapter allows us to subvent the initiation fee (charged by the national Phi Beta Kappa Society) for students for whom that fee would be a barrier to joining.
