Phi Kappa Phi Honors Society Induction

Last April 06, I was inducted into the Phi Kappa Phi Honors Society Chapter 045 - University of the Philippines, through a big celebration at the Cine Adarna in UP Diliman campus. It was a long grueling ceremony that lasted more than 4 hours (because of the number of inductees and it started a bit late). In any case, I was happy to be inducted. Thank you. :)

I saw some very familiar faces during the induction - my high school friend and classmate Stanley Siahetiong (who's one of the Juniors - meaning top 7.5% of their batch - who was inducted with us graduating students) and my thesismate/bestfriend/yadayadaya (sorry, too much to enumerate) Barbie Perez. I also saw KAISA's #1 Councilor Chorva David, Sarah Toledo, Laura Clemente, Mario Cerilles, Justin Batocabe, and a lot more familiar faces.

The Phi Kappa Phi was founded in 1897 as "Lambda Sigma Eta Society" at the University of Maine; it was later renamed Phi Kappa Phi. It is the "nation's oldest, largest, and most selective honor society for all academic disciplines. Its chapters are on more than 300 campuses in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. Each year, approximately 30,000 members are initiated."

To be eligible for invitation to the Honors Society one must be "an outstanding student of sound character, enrolled at a college or university with a Phi Kappa Phi Chapter," and "must rank in the top 10% of their class (for seniors)"

This is the motto of Phi Kappa Phi. It means "Let the love of learning rule humanity." As members of the Phi Kappa Phi Honors Society we are called "to recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others."
