Czepiel inducted to nation’s highest honor society
Tara Czepiel from Sugar Grove was among the Phi Beta Kappa inductees at Augustana University.
Czepiel is a senior at Augustana and is majoring in biology and Spanish.
Only about one in every 100 college students nationwide is selected as a member of the oldest and most prestigious honor society in the nation.
Augustana students are selected for Phi Beta Kappa based on their academic standing and recommendations from faculty members. Members must be senior students who exhibit strong intellect and integrity and are committed to freedom of thought and expression. Augustana emphasizes that election to Phi Beta Kappa is more than an honor of past academic success. It is also recognition of a student’s outstanding potential for growth and achievement.
