Two CCI Students Awarded Phi Beta Kappa Keys

Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest academic honor society, was founded in 1776. The honor society strives to promote scholarship and tradition in the liberal arts and sciences–through a code of laws, Greek and Latin mottoes and a badge of honor. Over half a million students around the country are chapter members at 276 universities. The Alpha of Florida Chapter at FSU invites guest speakers of varying academic backgrounds to present at seminars and attend member socials.

The Florida State chapter of Phi Beta Kappa recently elected eight Media and Communication Studies students. The honors society actively involves professors, who contribute and participate in member events and activities.

Two students, Mariana Alves and Mary Kate Downing, will be awarded Phi Beta Kappa keys. The Key is known as one of the nation’s most distinctive symbols and traces its origins to the era of the American Revolution.
