The Beginning

1776

PHI BETA KAPPA

The Phi Beta Kappa Society is the oldest academic honor society in the US.A. and is regularly praised for it’s long-standing place in history and its preference for excellence in their candidates. Founded in the year 1776, Phi Beta Kappa advocated excellence in liberal arts and sciences, and aimed to gather the most remarkable students in the country under this effort.

1923

PHI ETA SIGMA

Phi Eta Sigma was founded in 1923 at the University of Illinois as a way to cater to an extremely important group of students: incoming Freshman. Their slogan, which is “inspired by the past and dedicated to the future,” truly highlights that lessons from earlier honor societies have migrated to the 20th century, and that these values are still important to members (as they have inducted over 1,100,000 scholars). Their mission is to reward those if a high academic standing among first-year college students.
