Five Math Majors Inducted into Phi Beta Kappa

Monday, May 1, 2017

Congratulations to the following mathematics majors who were elected to the Beta Chapter of Virginia of Phi Beta Kappa:

Olivia  Hughes Bicks
Peter Emil Dillery
Ji Won Kim
Dan Yu
Yutong Zhang

Carrie Douglass, President of the Beta Chapter of Virginia of Phi Beta Kappa, explains the significance of this accomplishment:
"As the oldest and most distinguished honor society in the country, Phi Beta Kappa offers membership to less than one percent of all undergraduates. Many of the leading figures in American history and culture have begun their careers with election to the society, including seventeen presidents of the United States. As a result, membership is a remarkable accomplishment, both for the student who achieves it and the faculty and staff whose support and guidance has led to this milestone."
