“Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious academic honor society, and these students’ induction is a testament to their hard and fruitful academic labors during their time at UK,” said Philip Harling, chapter president and UK College of Arts and Sciences professor of history. “It’s an honor they’ve richly deserved, and it’s a great pleasure to recognize their achievements in this way.”
