Phi Beta Kappa considers members of the top 10 percent of the graduating class. Those seniors elected were Catherine Bowers, James Collins, Tanner Dixon, Dala Eloubeidi, David Goodloe, Caroline Hyde, Sean Moran, Adam Pratt, and Frances Williams.

Election is based upon good character and a distinguished record of performance in liberal arts courses that demonstrate interest in a broad range of disciplines, as well as substantive work in areas outside the major and in a foreign language.

Since 1937, BSC has been one of fewer than 290 colleges in the United States to shelter a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. Founded in 1776, Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most widely respected academic honorary society in the United States.
