Phi Beta Kappa Members Named

 Sixty-four of Hope College's graduating seniors and recent graduates have been elected to the Zeta of Michigan chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's oldest  scholastic honorary society.

          For more than 200 years, election to Phi Beta
  Kappa has been a recognition of intellectual capacity well-
  employed, especially in acquiring an education in the
  liberal arts and sciences.  The objectives of learning
  encouraged by Phi Beta Kappa include intellectual honesty
  and tolerance, range of intellectual interests and
  understanding, not merely knowledge.
          Hope faculty who are members of Phi Beta Kappa
  have elected students in recognition of their high grade
  point average in liberal arts courses, their exceptional
  scholarly ability, and their independent and creative
  scholarly activities.
          A formal initiation ceremony and reception will
  take place on Sunday, April 25, 1999, at 2 p.m. in the Mass
  Center Auditorium.  The honorees will also be recognized
  during the college's Honors Convocation on Thursday, April
  29, at 8 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel.
          Hope College is one of only 255 colleges and
  universities in the country, and one of eight in Michigan,
  to have a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.  Hope's chapter was
  chartered in 1971.
