Honor and mystery were on display April 25 in Jesse Auditorium during the annual Tap Day ceremony.

Tap Day primarily recognizes students who excel in academics and campus involvement being initiated into one of six honorary societies. Staff and faculty can also be tapped. The ceremony is in its 87th year at the University of Missouri.


Among those revealed were, from left, student Farrah El-Jayyousi, student Alison Schwartz and honor tap Wilma King, Arvarh E. Strickland Distinguished Professor and chair of the Department of Black Studies.
