Phi Kappa Phi

Phi Kappa Phi is more than a line on a résumé. The nation’s oldest and most selective multidisciplinary collegiate honor society initiates more than 30,000 members a year on 300 campuses in the United States and the Philippines.

More than 1.25 million members have joined its ranks since Phi Kappa Phi’s founding in 1897 at the University of Maine. It is a global network of the best and brightest, a community of scholars and professionals building an enduring legacy for all generations.

Texas State University was awarded Chapter 325 by the Phi Kappa Phi Governing Board in Spring of 2013.  The chapter was installed on October 30, 2013 at 3:30 PM in the Wittliff Collections. The first inaugural class of student members was initiated into the society on April 3, 2014.

September 26: Banned Book Read-Out in Alkek

Banned Books Week was launched in 1982 by the American Library Association in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. According to the American Library Association more than 11,300 books have been challenged since 1982. On September 26, 2017, Alkek Library invited students, faculty, and staff members to read aloud from their favorite banned book. Several Phi Kappa Phi members participated.
