Each year, select University of Missouri students, staff and faculty are inducted into one of six secret honorary societies at Mizzou's annual Tap Day. The six societies – QEBH, Mystical Seven, LSV, Mortar Board, Omicron Delta Kappa and the Rollins Society – honor new members for their service, leadership and commitment to the Mizzou community. This year, the list of honorees includes 13 Trulaske College of Business students, 2 faculty members and an alumnus of the college.
