Phi Beta Kappa 241st Anniversary Social

Tuesday, December 5, 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Washington Commons, 4333 Brooklyn Avenue N.E., Seattle (location and directions)

The Phi Beta Kappa Society was founded on December 5, 1776, by five students at the College of William and Mary in Virginia. We are celebrating the 241st anniversary of Phi Beta Kappa with a social event at University of Washington Alumni Association's Washington Commons. Please come and enjoy some appetizers, meet other Phi Beta Kappa members, and learn more about the Puget Sound Association of Phi Beta Kappa, the alumni association for Phi Betes in Western Washington.

This event is free and you are welcome to bring guests. If you have a Phi Beta Kappa key, please wear it to the event.

Paid parking is available on local streets and parking lots, and several buses stop nearby.

Due to construction of the Link light rail U District Station, Brooklyn Avenue N.E. is blocked off in front of the UW Tower, and there is a construction fence around the property. You can enter the property from N.E. 45th Street between 12th Avenue N.E. and Brooklyn Avenue N.E., and walk to the southeast corner of the property, past the UW Tower, to Washington Commons.

There is also an entrance through the construction fence on N.E. 43rd Street near 12th Avenue N.E. that is open until 6 p.m.

Please RSVP to Linda Willenberg at [email protected] or call her at 425-641-1606.
