2015 General Studies Phi Beta Kappa Inductees Announced

The key to an elite future

The key to an elite future

Earlier today the School of General Studies announced its Phi Beta Kappa inductees for this year’s graduating class. Fifty cool and smart seniors were selected to receive this high honor and, similarly to CC’s Phi Beta Kappa members, were granted membership based on “the breadth, depth, and rigor of their academic programs, as well as faculty recommendations from those who work closely with them.” Turns out there’s not much difference between GS and CC after all!

Congratulations to these superstar seniors, and if you see any of the people named below be sure to give them a tender pat on the back for all their integrity, intelligence, and devotion to office hours.
