Phi Beta Kappa, the oldest Greek-letter society in America, was founded in 1776 at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. The Greek letters ΦBK stand for the society’s motto, “Love of learning is the guide of life.” For over two hundred years elections to Phi Beta Kappa during a student’s college career is a recognition of the highest intellectual capacity and academic achievement in the liberal arts and sciences.
