The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest, largest, and most selective all-discipline honor society.  Each year our chapter selects four students to receive awards named after our first four presidents. The students must be nominated by a PKP faculty or administrator and the winners are selected by the PKP Executive Committee from the pool of nominees.  The criteria used by this committee include GPA, academic awards and honors, breadth of study, achievement in outside activities, and service to the profession and/or the community.  To be among the top four in such a group is a significant honor.
