Fort Hays State University's chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, a national academic honor society, has announced new members for this year. Only juniors, seniors, graduate students and professional faculty, staff and alumni with outstanding academic records are invited to become members.
Phi Kappa Phi's mission is to recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service of others.
