We are a small group of artists within a larger artistic community. Our membership comprises students, alumni, and faculty. Hailing from a wide array of disciplines, we come together to celebrate the arts and letters. Outside of the Signet, we uphold our shared appreciation by contributing to and supporting the arts.

For 145 years, the Signet Society has functioned as a gathering place for creative thinkers and their mentors—a forum for conversation and collaboration that lets those who occupy the space engage with and learn from one another.

As we evolve, we hope to continue to bolster the arts, while opening our doors wider to the creative community at large.


All Signet members are welcome at our Commencement Day reception on Thursday, May 26th, from 4-6 p.m., and at our Reunion reception on Saturday, May 28th, from 3-5 p.m.

The Hive closes for the summer after the Reunion reception, around 6 p.m. We reopen on Wednesday, August 31st.


During termtime, lunches are on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 1 p.m. The last lunch of the spring semester is May 13th.  More information
