Cardinal Key Society

 What are the Cardinal Keys all about? The Cardinal Key Society traces its roots back to May 28, 1940 when six members of the class of 1942 founded the Society to serve Muhlenberg College and extend goodwill to visitors. The club has grown over the years to provide a cohesive program for student involvement in the greater College community, specifically with alumni. The members work to develop traditions and instill a sense of school spirit among Muhlenberg students. Working in partnership with the Alumni Affairs office and the Career Center, members collaborate on events such as Alumni Weekend (Reunion/Homecoming), Honors Convocation, Commencement, and other alumni events.

Favorite CKS Memory: My favorite memory is definitely from the graduations that I have worked as a Cardinal Key Society member. I have worked backstage with handling the diplomas for the past two years and I have really enjoyed that because it is a bitter sweet moment where I get to see my friends graduate, but also realize how quickly my time at Muhlenberg is coming to a close. It is just really fun to be in that moment and think about all that has happened and will happen.
