Mortar Board is 101
Mortar Board celebrates its 101
birthday on February 15, 2019. Women representing our founding chapters met on a cold February 15, 1918 morning in Syracuse, N.Y., to create a national honor society for college senior women. Little did they know that their legacy, a century later, would be a Society more than a quarter-of-a-million members strong. From the beginning, Mortar Board was more than a means of recognizing academic achievement. The Society brought together women leaders from all parts of campus, honoring them for their dedication to the Ideals of scholarship, leadership and service. While the years have brought both growth and change to Mortar Board, the commitment to our Ideals remains as strong today as it was in 1918. Celebrate this tradition during Mortar Board week February 11-16.
