In 1925, University of Maine President
Clarence Little and Dean of Women Carolyn Colvin established a senior
honor society for UMaine women students — All Maine Women. (Its
counterpart, the all-male Senior Skulls Honor Society, was formed nearly
two decades earlier.)
Since its inception, All Maine Women has inducted more than 900 members.
All Maine Women represents the broad diversity of student
accomplishments on campus. Members are considered consummate role models
for undergraduate women. Each has a record of demonstrated scholarship
and distinguished leadership. They are recognizable not only by the tiny
pine tree they wear on their right cheeks one day a week, but also by
their commitment to community service, their display of UMaine spirit,
and their dedication to upholding and promoting the ideals, standards
and traditions of their alma mater.
The dozen members in the Class of 2006 major in art history, journalism,
parks and recreation, communication, marine sciences, psychology, social
work, marketing, education, chemical engineering, and child development
and family relations.
An All Maine Women Honor Society Endowment Fund recently established in
the University of Maine Foundation helps support members' community
service projects and activities that encourage positive relationships
between students, faculty, staff and alumni.
