In order to be considered for active membership in the Anderson Society, candidates must fill out an application in the spring of their junior year. Applicants must have a 2.75 overall GPA, outstanding leadership qualities, and be active on campus and in the community. No interview is required for membership. Twenty-four active members are selected.
Another category of membership is honorary membership. Honorary membership consists of those students, graduate and undergraduate, that are selected for membership but who will not be returning to the University in the fall due to graduation. Faculty members who are chosen are also considered to have honorary membership. Seven honorary members are chosen. Applicants who are selected for both types of memberships are tapped on The Mound during Honors Day in the spring.
If you have any questions about the activities or membership requirements of the Anderson Society, email email@example.com or contact UA’s Coordinating Council for Honor Societies.
The Anderson Society is a recognition of extraordinary leadership, that itself becomes an important means for collaboration, service, and involvement in both the University of Alabama and its surrounding community.
