Glynn Scholars Inducted into Phi Beta Kappa as Juniors

Phi Beta Kappa Inductees 2017

Notre Dame's chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa national honor society inducted its first class ever of students chosen for early admission based on the strength of their academic record through their junior year. Phi Beta Kappa is the nation's first honor society, formed in 1776 to promote and advocate excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. It remains the most prestigious of American honor societies, with 286 chapters across the nation. It can claim 17 presidents and 136 Nobel laureates among its members.

For this inaugural class of early inductees, only 12 students were chosen from across campus. Among this group of exceptional young men and women were six students from the Glynn Family Honors Program. Congratulations go out to Michael Foley, Andrew Grose, Katharine Janes, Candice Park, Julia Szromba, and Elizabeth Wildenhain for being members of this inaugural group of elite scholars.

How work on a maple syrup farm, at the White House, and in the classroom prepared J.P. Bruno for a career in economic consulting

Jp Bruno Dc Class 1200

The summer after his sophomore year, Notre Dame senior J.P. Bruno was packaging maple syrup, taking care of honeybees, and tending to an orchard on a biodynamic farm in Vermont. Three weeks later, he was sitting in the White House, interning for the Council of Economic Advisors (CEA) as part of a semester in the Notre Dame Washington Program. These contrasting experiences provided Bruno, an economics and applied and computational mathematics and statistics (ACMS) major, with an assortment of skills that eventually led him to developing his senior thesis and receiving a job offer in economic consulting at the beginning of his senior year.

The two film, television, and theatre (FTT) majors’ recently completed Respectfully, Tony, a short documentary that shines a light on the U.S.’s mass incarceration problem and challenges people to rethink their opinions of the death penalty. The film has now been selected for multiple film festivals across the country.
