Phi Beta Kappa, the oldest and most distinguished of all the academic honorary societies, promotes, recognizes, and honors scholarly achievement in the liberal arts and sciences. Phi Beta Kappa was founded in 1776, and the Pi of New York chapter at Elmira College was established in 1940.

"A student's election to the society reflects far more than a high GPA achieved in a necessary selection of courses; it recognizes more than a body of acquired knowledge," said Dr. Charles Mitchell, Professor of American Studies and History. "Rather, it reflects a demonstrated interest in and commitment to the value of learning, to the vital traditions and principles offered by a broad education in the liberal arts and sciences. The College itself is honored to be able to recognize these students."
