Meeting with President Young

As UW’s oldest continuing honor society, Tolo Chapter has been fostering a sense of leadership, scholarship and service on our campus since 1909. Each year, this selective portion of the incoming senior class acts as a representative of the highest academic standards and leadership abilities at UW.

In our classes you will find undergraduates with outstanding achievements. We have a broad spectrum of extremely talented individuals in our society that include UW’s current Homecoming King, founders and leaders of student organizations across campus, and alumni such as the extremely philanthropic Mary Gates herself.

In Mortar Board, you will find incredible friendships, strong scholarship, networking opportunities, and community service experience.
