Biology, Philosophy Majors Receive Phi Beta Kappa Writing Internships

Sarah Vukalovic, BA '15, and Ellie Carrano, BA '15, were awarded writing internships with the Phi Beta Kappa (PBK) Society's national office in Washington, D.C. During their internships, which run from January-June 2014, both students will write a minimum of six publishable articles for Phi Beta Kappa's new website, The Key Reporter.

For the second year in a row, two of the 20 available PBK internships have gone to UD students. Last year's PBK interns were Vallery Bergez, BA '14, and Evan Hierholzer, BA '14, both English majors.

Vukalovic, a philosophy major, and Carrano, a biology major, will research and write articles from UD.

"It is very impressive that students in majors as diverse as biology and philosophy have been recognized for their excellence in writing. This success points to the breadth of preparation they receive in our liberal arts core curriculum," said Eileen Gregory, professor of English, who coordinated the nomination process.

"I look forward to writing in defense of the value of a liberal arts education in a professional environment," said Vukalovic.

Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most respected undergraduate honors organization in the United States, selecting junior and senior undergraduates who have demonstrated broad cultural interests, scholarly achievement and good character. The University of Dallas was chartered as the Eta Chapter of Texas in 1989.
