Islander Caitlin Kozel was recently initiated into Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. Kozel is pursuing a degree in veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University.
Kozel is among approximately 30,000 students, faculty and alumni to be inducted 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.
Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine, Phi Kappa Phi has chapters on more than 300 college and university campuses in North America and the Philippines.
