Innocents Society Application


The Innocents Society was founded at the University of Nebraska on April 24, 1903. Thirteen Juniors were chosen for the Chancellor's Senior Honorary based on academic excellence, campus leadership, and selfless service. These first Innocents took charge of such activities as supervising pep rallies, selecting yell squad members, and organizing Homecoming festivities. Their goal was to promote school spirit and to create an appreciation for the greater things for which Nebraska stands. These ideals still describe the Innocents Society today.
Each year 13 new members are selected based on unparalleled leadership, selfless service, and superior academic excellence. Unlike most senior honoraries, the Innocents Society is uniquely Nebraskan, forming a link between the faculty and the student body while guarding significant University of Nebraska traditions. In addition, the Innocents Society prides itself on being an active organization. If accepted into membership of the Innocents Society, you are expected to give significant time and energy to the organization.
