Phi Beta Kappa
The Phi Beta Kappa, History
Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's oldest and largest academic honor society, was founded on Dec. 5, 1776, by five students at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Va. It was the first society to have a Greek letter name. And in its early years it introduced the essential characteristics of such societies: an oath of secrecy (discarded in 1831), a badge, mottoes in Latin and Greek, a code of laws, and an elaborate initiation ritual.
national office of the Society was originally located in Williamsburg,
VA. Respective state headquarters are housed in universities or designated
areas.In 1954 it moved to Washington, DC where it still resides. The
national office is responsible for running the daily operations of the
Society, including relations with the chapter and associations, maintaining
membership data and the planning and administration or programs that
promote the mission of Phi Beta Kappa.
