In a tradition dating back to 1917, small groups of students have been selected (or “tapped”) by their peers to join one of the University of Missouri’s six secret honorary societies.
The six societies – Omicron Delta Kappa, LSV, Mortar Board, QEBH, Rollins Society and Mystical Seven – honor new members for their service, leadership and commitment to the Mizzou community.
The new initiates’ identities are kept secret until Tap Day. Each society also honor taps MU staff and faculty members who have contributed significantly to the university.
The 96th Tap Day ceremony is scheduled for 3 p.m. April 28, 2023 in Jesse Auditorium before a live audience. Additionally, the ceremony will be streamed live on this page and on the Mizzou YouTube channel. Reveal videos will also be posted on Mizzou Life’s Facebook and Instagram accounts.
