You'll be invited to become a Phi Beta Kappa national academic society if you score among the top 5% of college students in your region, says Wikipedia.

Social fraternities - brotherhoods - and sororities - sisterhoods - will invite you to become a member if you fit in with the tone of their group.

Why do these societies use Greek letters? Because they want to represent the highest goals in ethics and achievement - as did the classical-era Greeks. While the social organizations' image may be one of drinking and partying, their written goals are laudable.
