“The Boar’s Head Honorary Fraternity was founded in January 1920 at Oglethorpe University. The title of the organization is taken from the coat of arms of Oglethorpe University, a boar’s head being a prominent feature of the escutcheon. Membership was limited to the Junior and Senior classes. Selection was based on a high scholastic average, participation in campus events, and qualities of leadership. The group sponsored the annual Boar’s Head Ceremony at Christmas time and participated in other service activities.” (From the 1949 Yamacraw)
