Phi Alpha Theta

Alpha Delta Tau Chapter

We are very proud of Skidmore College's chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the National History Honor Society, Inc. Phi Alpha Theta was organized at the University of Arkansas on March 17, 1921. Since that time it has grown to over eight hundred chapters in the United States.  Phi Alpha Theta is the largest, in number of chapters, of the accredited honor societies holding membership in the Association of College Honor Societies. It was one of the original three honor societies admitted to the association at its founding in 1945. Membership in Phi Alpha Theta has grown to more than 270,000 initiates since 1921.

The Skidmore chapter (Alpha Delta Tau) was established at Skidmore College on April 20, 1989.
