Phi Beta Kappa


Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s oldest and most respected undergraduate honor society. The Colby College chapter—Beta of Maine—was chartered in 1896 and has, every year since, elected to membership in the society many of Colby’s most engaged and outstanding students.

At 7:00 pm on May 5, 2021 we will initiate our newly elected members.

The officers of Phi Beta Kappa’s Beta Chapter of Maine encourage Colbians past and present to support our mission or to avail yourselves of the opportunities we provide.
