The senior honor awards are among the oldest traditions at the University of Pennsylvania, dating back as early as 1865 when Penn still occupied a campus on 9th street, in Center City, Philadelphia. Today, these awards are presented to their recipients on Ivy Day during the weekend of Commencement each year. Elected by their fellow students in recognition of outstanding service to the University community, the recipients of these awards have always included the best and brightest of each graduating class. Since its founding in 2002, Oracle Senior Honor Society has had many of its members be recipients of these awards.
The Men Senior Honor Awards, in respective order of its honor, includes the Spoon Award, the Bowl Award, the Cane Award, and the Spade Award. To view a detailed description of each of the Men’s Senior Honor Awards, click here.
