Come Celebrate our Phi Beta Kappa Initiates

The initiation of the Class of 2022 Phi Beta Kappa initiates will take place this Friday, May 6, at 10:30 AM in Gray Chapel. All are welcome and encouraged to attend to celebrate this great achievement.

The new inductees join a historic organization that counts 17 U.S. presidents, 42 Supreme Court justices, and more than 140 Nobel laureates among its members.

Based in Washington, D.C., Phi Beta Kappa was founded in 1776, and its name originated from the motto “Love of learning is the guide of life.” Ohio Wesleyan’s Eta Chapter was founded in 1907.

The honor society’s mission is to champion education in the liberal arts and sciences, recognize academic excellence, and foster freedom of thought and expression.
