The legacy of outstanding leadership, dedicated service to the community, and preservation of tradition will continue at Colgate as the newest members of the Konosioni Senior Honor Society will be  inducted at 3 p.m. Friday  in Memorial Chapel.

The Konosioni Senior Honor Society has had a longstanding historical presence at Colgate — whether it was known or not.

In 1934, two secret societies, the Skull and Scroll and the Gorgon’s Head, resolved to end their rivalry and joined together to form Konosioni. Each class is composed of peer-selected 26 members, representing 13 from each original society.

Colgate students chose the name Konosioni, which literally means “people of the long house,” to honor the living traditions of the Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) Confederacy, an important presence in central New York.

The selected students have demonstrated commitment to the ideals of the society and continue to make a significant impact on Colgate’s campus.

Congratulations to the newest members of Konosioni Senior Honor Society:
