For 145 years The Signet Society has played a role in the intellectual, literary, and artistic life of Harvard College. Founded in 1870 by members of the Class of 1871, the Signet is composed of students, faculty, and administrators of Harvard College. The Signet Society is recognized by the College as an active undergraduate extracurricular organization. Signet membership continues to be based on the original criteria: character, intellectual achievement, literary or artistic talent, and an interest in furthering the humanities and the creative arts.

The Hive has closed for the summer. We reopen on Wednesday, September 2nd. During termtime, lunches at The Signet are on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 1 p.m.  More information

Jesse Nee-Vogelman: our new Artist-in-Residence

The Signet is delighted to welcome back Jesse Nee-Vogelman '13 as our next Artist-in-Residence. Since graduating, he has traveled the world while working on a novel, which he hopes to finish at 46 Dunster Street.

As an undergrad, Jesse concentrated in Slavic Languages and Literature and speaks Russian. He worked for four years on the tech crew of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals; worked with the Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club, including the direction of a play he had written; and advised freshmen on creative writing.

Last year's A-i-R, Sally Scopa '13, is staying in the Boston area next fall, working at MGH and coming by the Signet for lunches whenever she can, which we hope will be often. Thanks for all your help this year, Sally!
