In addition to the qualities of scholarship, leadership and service that define all Boulder Society members, we would also like to be known by these words: the Boulder Class of 2018 will be involved, diverse, humble, full of school spirit, inspirational, inclusive and fun. We also want to emphasize our commitment to representing the undergraduate student body, a mission upon which the Boulder Society was founded.
