Phi Beta Kappa
has been one of the most respected societies in the world for more than 200 years. Phi Beta Kappa was founded in 1776 at the College of William and Mary, Virginia. Within a decade, chapters arose at Yale, Harvard, and Dartmouth. The Wyoming chapter received its charter in 1940, and today fewer than 250 colleges and universities in the United States meet the strict qualifications for housing a chapter. UW faculty and administrators annually elect to membership fewer than one-tenth of the leading scholars of the senior class, candidates for the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. In exceptional cases a junior may be elected. In addition to having a distinguished academic record, a student eligible for Phi Beta Kappa must pursue a balanced and broad course of study, which would include a foreign language as well as courses in math, the sciences, and the humanities. At least three-quarters of the students course work must be in the liberal arts and sciences. Students are reviewed for eligibility and are notified by mail the spring of their election. Phi Beta Kappa promotes the ideal of a community of scholarship, and every year the chapter sponsors a number of eminent visiting lecturers for the entire university.
Phi Upsilon Omicron is a national honor society in home economics/family and consumer sciences. Potential members are invited to membership based on academic excellence and leadership.
Student Dietetic Association (SDA
) is a recognized student organization at UW. The professional benefits include: Leadership opportunities; volunteer experience in nutrition related presentations and projects; networking with Registered Dietitians in Wyoming; opportunities to attend dietetic conferences; eligibility for membership in the national organization of the American Dietetic Association.
