Historical Note

Sophomore Eagles is an honor society for women at the University of Maine based on leadership, dignity, character, scholarship, and friendship. The first 11 pledges were chosen in December 1926. The blue star is their symbol. The Sophomore Eagles are associated with the All Maine Women, Senior Skulls, and Sophomore Owls.

Historical Note

Sophomore Owls established in 1910 is the highest non-scholastic honor awarded a male student at the University of Maine. The organization was founded to instill Maine Spirit in the freshman and sophomore classes, to promote harmony between these two classes, to interest preparatory school athletes in entering the University of Maine, and to aid the administration whenever possible. The Sophomore Owls work closely with the Senior Skulls, All Maine Women, and the Owls sister organization, the Sophomore Eagles.
