This year’s Initiation Ceremony will be held on Thursday, June 14, 2018 from 2:00-3:00pm in Pacific Ballroom, Student Center. Family and friends are welcome to attend this important event (no tickets required). After the ceremony there will be a reception for new members, visitors, faculty and staff.
On the day of the Ceremony, new members should check in beginning at 1:00pm and take their seats no later than 1:40pm. Please arrive early to avoid long lines. At check-in you will receive your seating card, Phi Beta Kappa Handbook, and the Key Collection order form. You will have the opportunity to purchase the Phi Beta Kappa cord for the cash discount of $12.00 or purchase it on credit for $12.50.
Russell Turner, UCI Head Men’s Basketball Coach is Phi Beta Kappa and will be the guest speaker for the 2017 Initiation Ceremony.
At an appointed time, you will be asked to walk up to the stage and have your name announced. After you cross the stage, you will be given your official Phi Beta Kappa Certificate of Membership, sign the Roll Book, and then return to your seat. We ask that new members wear appropriate “business casual” attire for the event.
New members who are unable to attend the Initiation Ceremony may pick up their Phi Beta Kappa Certificates starting Monday, June 18, 2018 in 193 Ayala Science Library, in the Center of Writing & Communication between 9:00am and 4:00pm.
