PKP-SJSU Initiation | 2020

Our annual Spring Initiation, originally scheduled for early April 2020, was cancelled along with other campus events due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  All of the Awardees will receive their honors virtually and be formally recognized at the 2021 Initiation.  All of the Initiates were recognized as members of Phi Kappa Phi by the national office in Spring 2020 and have received their confirmations virtually.
