Harvard’s chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa Society, Alpha Iota, announced the election of 24 members of the Class of 2002 to its ranks last week.
The elite “Junior 24” are elected each spring by a committee of current Harvard chapter members, including members of the faculty and previously elected students. Two more groups of students will be elected from the Class of 2002 next year.
Albert H. Cho ’02, a Social Studies concentrator in Adams House, said he was surprised and honored to be elected to the society.
“I’d read about it before,” he said, “but I never thought that I’d be a member.”
Other newly elected members to the society were unfamiliar with the organization before being elected, but said they were still very pleased.
Abigail G. Doyle ’02 said she knew almost nothing about Phi Beta Kappa prior to her election, though both her parents are members.
“It’s just something that they said, oh yeah, we were in that too,” said Doyle, a chemistry concentrator in Kirkland House. “It was definitely an honor.”
Initial nomination for election to the society is based entirely on grade point average.
