Monday, Sep 21, 2020

NES concentrator Haeley Ahn ’21 has been elected to Phi Beta Kappa. “The Phi Beta Kappa Society [was] founded in 1776 and [is] the oldest of all national honorary scholastic societies…. Election to [the Princeton] chapter is based on scholastic standing and is open to candidates for the A.B. and B.S.E. degrees in their senior year. The chapter generally includes in its membership the highest-ranking tenth of each graduating class. A small group is elected in the fall of the senior year based on their academic record in the first three years; a larger group is elected at the end of the senior year and is inducted at a ceremony on Class Day.” Ahn, who had previously won the Shapiro Prize for Academic Excellence in 2017–18, is preparing a senior thesis under the guidance of Professor Max Wiess on women’s rights in the Nahda.
