Guided by the ideology of purity and accuracy, we disbanded from national fraternal ties in 1970 to achieve greater creative independence and initiative with the Kenyon Community. In 1974, female members were accepted to form a more perfect aura within our state. We are balanced and continuous people; Torque Mortem Talpem Supra Tuum Caput Dum Vivimus Vivamus!
The Archon Society is a co-educational, inclusive service and social fraternity. Our mission is to unite Kenyon College students with the residents of Knox County through excellence in service and community outreach programs. The members of the Archon Society strive to organize a variety of service and events while creating a sense of community within the organization, Kenyon College, and Knox County.
