Membership

UNLV’s top 7.5 percent of second semester juniors and the top 10 percent of seniors and graduate students are invited to join Phi Kappa Phi as a testament to their hard work and superior scholarship. Phi Kappa Phi membership does not exclude membership in other honor societies. Each spring, new members and their family and friends are invited to witness Phi Kappa Phi’s initiation ceremony and banquet.
