Phi Beta Kappa

Hugh Downs School Director and Professor Sarah J. Tracy display both her Phi Beta Kappa certificate and the one awarded to school namesake Hugh Downs from the Washington and Lee University in 1969

Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most celebrated of the college honor societies in the United States. Membership in the ASU Chapter lasts a lifetime and opens the door to a vast network of successful individuals in nearly every career field. 

Phi Beta Kappa (ΦΒΚ) stands for Φιλοσοφία Βίου Κυβερνήτης (Philosophia Biou Kybernētēs), which means “love of wisdom is the guide of life,” or “philosophy is the governor of one’s life.”
