The Fresno State Chapter of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi surprised campus President Joseph Castro this week by inducting him as a member.

Castro had joined Phi Kappa Phi leaders at a Wednesday meeting in the Henry Madden Library on campus for the presentation of historical chapter programs and other materials to the library's Special Collections Research Center.

The Fresno State Chapter was installed in 1953. Since then it has initiated more than 7,500 members. More than 800 students, faculty and staff are current members.

Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines.
