Five English Majors Inducted into Phi Kappa Phi

Five English majors were recently inducted into Phi Kappa Phi, a college honors society for students from all academic disciplines. The students were inducted on April 7 during a ceremony in the McConomy Auditorium in the University Center. Congratulations to Anna Albi, Hannah Dellabella, Colleen Eagan, Laura Stiles and Kayla Walker!

Anna Albi


Major: Creating Writing and Professional Writing double major

"I am excited and thrilled to be inducted in to Phi Kappa Phi. It is such an honor to be recognized in conjunction with so many accomplished people. I am eager to make new connections and look forward to working with some of my fellow members in the future."

Hannah Dellabella

Major: Creating Writing and Professional Writing double major

"Becoming a member of Phi Kappa Phi is a great honor as well as a reminder to myself that hard work always pays off in the end."

Colleen Eagan


Major: Bachelor of Arts in English (EBA)

Laura Stiles


Major: Creating Writing and Professional Writing double major

"I am honored to be inducted into Phi Kappa Phi.  I strongly believe in life-long education and learning, and I am very excited to become a member of this community of  scholars.  I think it's really important to not only have knowledge of your own major, but to become knowledgeable about as many things as possible.  I think communication between people in a wide range of disciplines is one of the best ways to achieve this."

Kayla Walker


Major: Professional Writing

"As a student who was home schooled from fourth grade through high school, I was never formally recognized for academic success aside from standardized tests. Now, as a student at Carnegie Mellon University, it is a privilege to be recognized for academic achievement through my induction into Phi Kappa Phi."
