What is Tomahawk?
Tomahawk is a service and leadership honor society, and as such, Tomahawk selects outstanding, independent students of freshman level or above who have shown leadership characteristics in campus activities. By bringing these leaders together, Tomahawk hopes to further develop each student’s abilities as well as broaden the scope of each member through a one semester pledge-ship and activities put forth by the organization.
Through dedication to this organization, all Tomahawk members help stimulate interest in the benefits derived from the participation in all activities.
- To give recognition to independent students for outstanding work in student activities and organizations
- To stimulate interest in and to cooperate with student organizations and activities
- To provide opportunities in leadership for its members
- To be of service to the college community
- To act as an athletic boosting organization
Each Tomahawk member’s primary focus is on being of service to the college community. Throughout each semester, we provide many opportunities for the active members to be constantly engaged in various service events and projects around campus. To create a comfortable and family-like environment, our social coordinators plan multiple events for active members to attend throughout the semester. Aside from the service and social aspect, Tomahawk also acts as an active and athletic-boosting organization. Members may compete in intramural sports as a team in numerous sports offered by the Division of Recreational Sports. The ultimate purpose behind the service, social, and athletics is to support the Five Functions of Tomahawk.
