Mortar Board Members and The Innocents of Nebraska.

Mortar Board Members and The Innocents of Nebraska.

Sons Association
The Innocent Society is the first honorary chancellor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Founded on April 24, 1903, and unique in Nebraskan, the community has led the campus in all aspects and fostered school spirit for over 100 years.

In the spring, 13 new members of the Junior Class will be selected to continue the traditions and goals of the Innocent Society. Part of this mission is the continuation of the community itself. Membership is based on superior academic achievement, unparalleled leadership, and dedicated service to the university and community.

Community members wear sunglasses and dark robes not to intimidate or intimidate, but to promote the group as a whole rather than our individual identities. The group works for the betterment of the university and does not seek recognition or honors for itself.

The Society of the Innocents is named after the thirteen Innocent popes. Historically, the innocent popes of Rome have stood heroes against evil. Their purpose is to fight in the same way and to promote all that is just and honorable among the students and with the university.

Thus, the badge of the innocent became the head of Mephistopheles above the cross-legged heritage, symbolizing the negative influences that must be overcome through the actions of society. The number 13 on the badge represents the 13 innocent members working to preserve all that is good on campus

Applications are open for juniors to apply to class 117. Freshmen and sophomores can apply for scholarships. Applications are due by 1:13 p.m. on January 29, 2021.
