More than 50 KU students initiated into national history honor society

LAWRENCE -- More than 50 University of Kansas students recently were initiated into Phi Alpha Theta, a national history honor society.

During ceremonies in April at the Kansas Union, keynote speaker Megan Green, KU assistant professor of history, spoke to initiates about how she became interested in being a historian of modern China.

Undergraduate students were invited to join if they had completed four history courses with a grade-point average of at least 3.1 and had a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.

Phi Alpha Theta seeks to promote the study of history by encouraging research, good teaching, publication and the exchange of learning and ideas among historians. Both the KU and national chapters offer members the opportunity to present historical research at conventions and professional conferences.
