Villanova Phi Kappa Phi 

The Villanova chapter of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi was founded in 1974. Each year since then, our chapter has inducted between 150 and 200 of the top seniors and juniors in the University. In 1999, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of our chapter, and we were honored for that at the most recent triennial meeting of the National Society. During our tenure as a member society of Phi Kappa Phi, Villanova inductees have won many graduate fellowships from the Society.

There will be graduating HRD students that will be distinguished with this honor upon graduating on May 14th, 2016. 

To read more about the honor society, please visit the homepage on Villanova's website here:https://www1.villanova.edu/villanova/artsci/undergrad/resources/phikappaphi.html
