Oswego student iinducted into the honorary society of Phi Kappa Phi

Samantha Sommerfeld from Oswego, Illinois, was recently inducted into the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, the country’s oldest and most selective multidisciplinary academic honor society. Sommerfeld was initiated at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Sommerfeld is one of more than 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni who are introduced to Phi Kappa Phi each year. Membership is by invitation only and requires a Chapter nomination and approval. Only the top 10% of seniors and 7.5% of juniors are eligible for membership. Graduate students in the top 10% of the number of graduate degree applicants may also be eligible, as may faculty, professional staff, and alumni who have achieved academic distinction.

Phi Kappa Phi was founded in 1897 under the leadership of undergraduate student Marcus L. Urann who wanted to create a different kind of honor society: one that recognizes excellence in all academic disciplines. Today the Society has chapters on more than 325 campuses in the United States and the Philippines. Its mission is “to recognize and promote academic excellence in all areas of higher education and to engage the academic community in the service of others”.
