College of Charleston

The following people recently were initiated into The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines.

Students from Mount Pleasant attending the College of Charleston are:

Rebecca Berlin; Margaret Bowden; Jenna Carter; Erin Daniels; Lauren Dryzer; Benjamin Duvall; Briana Fabian; Chris Green; Jayson Gulick; Danny Johnson Jr.; William Myrick; Cole Shippee.

Also, Christopher Poole of Daniel Island at College of Charleston received the honor.

They are among approximately 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year. Membership is by invitation only and requires nomination and approval by a chapter. Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors are eligible for membership. Graduate students in the top 10 percent of the number of candidates for graduate degrees may also qualify, as do faculty, professional staff and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction.

Phi Kappa Phi was founded in 1897 under the leadership of undergraduate student Marcus L. Urann who had a desire to create a different kind of honor society: one that recognized excellence in all academic disciplines. Today, the Society has chapters on more than 325 campuses in the United States and the Philippines. Its 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.”
