New members are Jacob Fredericks, Ogdensburg, NY; Kathryn Green, Pittsford, NY; Charles Spence, Plainfield, VT; and Cooper Thompson, New Haven, VT.

To be eligible for membership in Phi Sigma Tau, a student must have completed three semesters at St. Lawrence; be in the top 35 percent of her or his class; and must have taken at least two courses in philosophy with a philosophy average of at least 3.5.
