Although the details of its history are shrouded in mystery, the philanthropic secret 7 Society has donated money every year to the first-year class and has paid for the street lights on Rugby Road.

Student Appreciation Centered around the 257th birthday of Thomas Jefferson, Student Council will launch "Constituency Appreciation Week" on April 10-14 to extend gratitude to the University student body for its active role in the community.
