COP celebrates initiation of new Phi Beta Kappa members

College of the Pacific is please to announce the initiation of ten new members into Phi Beta Kappa, one of the nation’s oldest and most distinguished honor fraternities. Friday’s ceremony also honored three students who were initiated in 2013, and also saw the initiation of Little Fawn Boland, SIS ’98, into the society as an alumni member.

“I was uniquely qualified for law school because of the liberal arts education I received at University of the Pacific,” said Boland, a partner at Ceiba Legal, LLP, a law firm that specializes in the needs of tribal governments, tribal enterprises, American Indian individuals and entities seeking to partner with tribes. “You walk into a room, and you’re not starting from zero – you have a bedrock foundation of knowledge to draw from.”
