The Lantern Society ($25,000 to $49,999) is named for the annual Lantern Night Ceremony, which serves as a formal induction for freshman women by distinguished alumnae into University life. Initiated in 1921, it is one of the University's longest standing traditions.
Membership in the Lantern Society honors those who have given $25,000 to $49,999 in a fiscal year.
