The Phi Beta Kappa chapter at Albion College does more than elect new members twice a year.

  • We host an initiation ceremony and banquet every year the evening before Honors Convocation.  
  •  Each year we select the Phi Beta Kappa Faculty Scholar of the Year. We recognize recipients at the college Honors Convocation, award a cash prize, and invite them to our annual initiation banquet. 
  • We recognize the outstanding sophomore(s) and junior(s) at Albion College through scholarship recognition awards.  We invite them to be our guests at our annual initiation banquet and present them with a book. 
  • We honor the top students at the local high school by presenting them with certificates. Senior honorees also receive book awards. 
  • Approximately every other year we bring a Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar to campus for a two-day period.  The Scholar gives a public address and conducts formal and informal meetings with students.
