Bachman Honor Society

The Bachman Honor Society was founded on March 15, 1962, by a group of faculty who were members of Phi Beta Kappa, and others who were deeply committed to fostering high standards of scholarship.

The Society is named for the Reverend John Bachman, D.D., churchman and scholar, and the primary guiding force in the founding of Newberry College.

Each year the Society inducts new members selected from the top eight percent of the senior class. New members, who may also include one member of the faculty or staff, are recognized at Awards Day Convocation and at Commencement.
