The Phi Beta Kappa Society honors students whose undergraduate academic records fulfill the objectives of a liberal arts education. These students have met our rigorous membership requirements and are automatically notified during their senior years if they qualify for induction at June Commencement.
Each year, six outstanding UO undergraduates are designated the Phi Beta Kappa Oregon Six. Their exceptional academic records combine extraordinary breadth and excellence in upper-division liberal arts courses with very high grade point averages.
Founded in 1776 at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, the Phi Beta Kappa Society is the oldest and most prestigious honorary society in the nation. Today its chapters number 276 as the society continues to pursue its mission of fostering and recognizing excellence in the liberal arts and sciences.
Alpha of Oregon chapter at the University of Oregon became the first Phi Beta Kappa chapter in the state in 1923.
