Five Linguistic students initiated into Phi Beta Kappa

This year, one hundred and thirty-three students will be initiated into Phi Beta Kappa, including fourteen juniors, one hundred and two seniors, and seventeen 2020 graduates.  The University of Pennsylvania's Linguistic Department is well represented:

  • TWO juniors initiated (especially prestigious, as very few juniors get selected for this), namely:
    Kevin Liang,
    Sarah Payne

  • Two seniors initiated, namely:
    Leah Baxter,
    Matthias Volker

  • PLUS last year’s graduate (and Hoenigswald prize winner) Nikhil Lakhani also initiated.

Thanks for all your support to these students, and if you know them, feel free to congratulate them directly!
