For nearly 100 years, the Senior Skull Honor Society has represented some of the best University of Maine students. The top 1 percent of senior men is chosen for the prestigious society based on leadership, character, campus and community involvement, and outstanding academic achievement.

Eleven students founded the Senior Skulls in 1906. Their goal was to "publicly recognize, formally reward, and continually promote outstanding leadership and scholarship, and exemplary citizenship within the University of Maine community."

In the past century, more than 1,250 UMaine men have been inducted, including 10 students who are now members of the Senior Skull Centennial Class of 2006. The newest members are majors in business/finance; elementary education; microbiology; and computer, civil, mechanical, electrical, information systems and chemical engineering.

Now an endowment fund as been established in the University of Maine Foundation to help ensure the group's continued longevity and viability for many years to come. The Senior Skull Centennial Fund also will allow future classes the flexibility to support the university and surrounding communities with new and creative initiatives.
