The induction ceremony for new student members is on Thursday, May 18th, 2016 at 4 p.m. in the St. Thomas of Villanova Church. The Phi Beta Kappa Society, founded in 1776, celebrates and advocates excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. Their motto is "Love of learning is the guide of life". These ideas, symbolized on Phi Beta Kappa's distinctive gold key, still lay the foundations of personal freedom, scientific inquiry, liberty of conscience, and creative endeavor.
