Scope and Contents

The Koseme Society records include constitution, by-laws, initiation policies, and membership lists. Because the constitution and by-laws are not dated, it is unclear when these were passed or amended. The membership lists are handwritten in a bound notebook. Each member signed his or her name along with the date s/he joined the society.

Administrative History of the Koseme Society

The Koseme Society, a campus honor society, was founded in 1912 for the purpose of recognizing leadership qualities in students. The organization undertakes service projects for the Tech community. Membership is limited to twenty students and only juniors may be nominated. Once a student reaches senior standing, s/he can no longer be involved with the group.
