Randolph College is one of only about 280 colleges in the nation with a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. In 1916, Randolph-Macon Woman’s College received the first Phi Beta Kappa charter granted to an independent woman’s college in the South, and the Delta Chapter of Virginia was officially installed the following year. Membership in Phi Beta Kappa recognizes a student’s high achievements in scholarship and maintenance of a balanced program of study in the liberal arts.
