Wendy Yang, CB Senior, Elected to Phi Beta Kappa
Wendy Yang, a senior in the Computational Biology Undergraduate program, has been elected to the prestigious academic honor society Phi Beta Kappa.
Phi Beta Kappa was founded in 1776 and is the nation’s oldest and most distinguished undergraduate academic honor society. With chapters at only 286 colleges and universities across the US, Phi Beta Kappa celebrates excellence in liberal arts and sciences and freedom of thought.
The induction into this prominent society is a great academic honor, especially in the fall semester when eligibility criteria are higher than for the general election in the spring semester. Wendy is among 21 of 1760 Carnegie Mellon seniors selected for early initiation in October.
