4.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Phi Beta Kappa Membership:
Tapped to join Phi Beta Kappa this semester? Don't toss the invitation into the trash, thinking this is one more solicitation for your hard-earned cash. Getting selected for this honorary society is a great accomplishment and recognized by grad schools, law and med schools as meaning you are among the best students academically at your institution. 

Phi Beta Kappa is the nation's oldest, most selective, and most prestigious liberal arts honor society. Dr. Knudson and Dr. Johnson are both proud members! Dr. K is also the UF chapter vice president. 

Phi Beta Kappa will be noted on your transcript and will make a very nice line on your resume. It also has some prestigious awards for graduate study, so if you are a member, take a look at the national website to see what is available. Also see below for an internship opportunity to write for their website next fall.

Standards for election into Phi Beta Kappa are extremely high, and membership is by invitation only. Outstanding GPA is only one consideration, and distribution and diversity of coursework in the liberal arts and sciences is another. For more information, visit http://www.honors.ufl.edu/PBK/Home.aspx or http://www.pbk.org

Also note that induction into Phi Beta Kappa now counts as an academic point towards the new Honors completion requirements.

The International Center and the UF Honors Program will be hosting Fulbright Day on Wednesday, April 16 from 9:00am-4:00pm at Smathers Library, Room 100 (formerly 1A).
