Scarlet Key

Boston University’s Scarlet Key Honor Society was founded in 1938 as an activities honor society, in which new members were voted in—or tapped—annually by existing members. Initially, members tapped their future inductees on the shoulder to hand them their induction ceremony invitation. The formal initiation ceremonies took place each spring and fall.

Today, BU faculty and staff nominate potential inductees annually in the spring for fall tapping, followed by a formal induction ceremony during Commencement Weekend in May.

BU faculty members and staff can nominate seniors for induction into the Scarlet Key Honor Society. Candidates are students who have exhibited exceptional leadership during their years at BU. Selection is based on excellence in University student activities and organizations, commitment to the individual’s School or College, and scholarship.
