Five CHC students selected as part of 'Oregon Six'

Five Clark Honors College seniors have been selected as members of this year’s “Oregon Six” at the University of Oregon.

The “Oregon Six” are the top six members of the Phi Beta Kappa Society, the oldest and the most prestigious academic honor society in the United States. UO’s chapter is the only recognized chapter in the Oregon University System.

The society honors students whose records fulfill the objectives of a liberal arts education. They are also recognized for their stellar academic records and their scholarly endeavors.

“These students represent the very best at the University of Oregon,” says CHC’s Acting Dean Carol Stabile. “Their academic passions, their hard work, and their intelligence all have pushed them to excel. These students are leaders who will make a difference in solving some of the world’s most challenging issues. We are lucky to have them as part of the Honors College family.”

The students will be honored at a breakfast ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 17, in Room 403 of the Ford Alumni Center.
