Phi Beta Kappa

Membership in Phi Beta Kappa recognizes and honors exceptional academic achievement in the arts and sciences. Just 10 percent of U.S. colleges and universities have Phi Beta Kappa chapters. These chapters select only the top 10 percent of their arts and sciences graduates to join Phi Beta Kappa, making Phi Beta Kappa membership one of the most prestigious honors a student can receive. The Phi Beta Chapter at Clemson University reflects Thomas Green Clemson’s vision of a high seminary of learning.
