Approximately 100 graduates of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Colorado at Boulder were initiated into the Phi Beta Kappa scholastic honorary organization this winter.
Phi Beta Kappa taps the top 6 percent of graduates receiving degrees each year in the liberal arts. The minimum grade-point average is 3.65.
The Phi Beta Kappa Society was founded in 1776 at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va., and has 250 chapters nationwide. CU-Boulder's Alpha Chapter, the first in Colorado, was chartered in 1904.
