Five Falls Church residents recently were initiated into The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines.
Gregory Fuge, Sarah Noll, and Patrick Kenny at George Mason University; Lisa Bonaparte at the University of Maryland at College Park; and Julia Willis at Villanova University were initiated into the selective honor society.
These residents are among approximately 32,000 students, faculty, professional staff, and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year. Membership is by invitation and requires nomination and approval by a chapter. Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors, having at least 72 semester hours, are eligible for membership. Graduate students in the top 10 percent of the number of candidates for graduate degrees may also qualify, as do faculty, professional staff, and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction.
