In the spring 2019 semester, eight Anselmians were inducted into Phi Alpha Theta, the college’s prestigious history honor society.

Eligible candidates were required to take four courses in history, maintaining a 3.1 grade point average or above. Those accepted into the society on April 3 are now life-long members, and are gifted a one-year subscription to The Historian, an academic journal that publishes stories of historical significance.

Phi Alpha Theta encourages the study of history, through its publications, research, and discussion of different ideas among a community of historians. The society as a whole promotes conversation and dialogue among students and faculty members, fostering further historical research.

The eight student inductees of Phi Alpha Theta are listed below:

Maxwell Ernst ’19
Edward Frankonis ’19
Breda Holland ’20
Robert Hughes ’20
Dena Miller ’20
Harrison Morin ’19
Allison Reh ’20
