Phi Beta Kappa Inducts 16 Students

By Stefanie Johndrow

Carnegie Mellon University’s chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa Society (PBK) has inducted 16 students, including nine from the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences.

The early initiation ceremony included a keynote from Isabel Yoon, a senior studying neuroscience.

“It was such a big honor to be recognized into this prestigious society and the ceremony was a moment to celebrate our breadth of interests, the effort we consistently devoted to our work, and most importantly, our character rooted in friendship,” Yoon said. “I’m so excited for the future, to see all the ways that everyone will use their talents to improve their communities and the world.”
