Western Illinois University Arista Chapter
Edward Bridge II
Mortar Board works on a point system in order for members to earn their honor cords for graduation. Although being inducted into Mortar Board does make everyone an official member who can wear the pin, it is an earned honor to be able to wear honor cords at graduation.
Every member must do all of the following, each semester, to earn their cords:
1. Attend all meetings during the semester, or read the minutes and provide an 1. adequate excuse.
2. Complete a minimum of 5 service hours.
3. Participate in the national service project (fall semester).
4. Participate in the selection of new members (spring semester).
Members are encouraged to participate in community service hours done through other organizations as these will count towards your total service hours.
