Tap Day

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 – QEBH, Mystical Seven, LSV, Mortar Board, Omicron Delta Kappa and the Rollins Society – honor new members for their service, leadership and commitment to the Mizzou community.

The new initiates’ identities are kept secret until Tap Day, when they’re publicly revealed online, following the schedule below. Each society also honor taps MU staff and faculty members who have contributed significantly to the university.

The 93rd Tap Day will be 10 a.m.-3 p.m. May 8. Reveal videos will take place on Mizzou Life’s Facebook and Instagram accounts and then will live on this page throughout the day.
