    It’s shopping period, but not just for classes — extracurriculars too. With the Extracurricular Bazaar, auditions, rushing and general meetings all happening all at once, you need to be aware that what you do will change your life. In four years, you might be someone different. Someone you hate. Someone you love. Someone you’re ashamed of. Someone you’re proud of. They say your major doesn’t mean anything, but no one said anything about your activities. WEEKEND is here to show you what you might become.

    At the conclusion of the fall semester, 13 juniors and 58 seniors were inducted into Yale’s chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.

    Admission to Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest honor society, is determined by the percentage of straight-A grades earned in college coursework. Yale taps students for the society in three elections that occur in junior fall, senior fall and at Commencement. According to national bylaws, no more than 10 percent of the graduating class may be elected in total.

    Phi Beta Kappa was founded in 1776 at the College of William and Mary and is the oldest collegiate Greek-letter fraternity. The Greek letters represent the motto “philosophia biou kybernetes,” or “love of learning is the guide of life,” and until the 1830s, inductees were sworn to secrecy. Since its foundation, members have included 17 U.S. presidents, 38 Supreme Court justices and 136 Nobel laureates.
