The society, All Maine Women, was founded at the University of Maine in April, 1925. It is the highest honorary but non-scholastic society for women. Members are chosen from the three upper classes on the basis of exemplary character, excellence in service to the University and community, Maine spirit, honor, dignity, willingness to accept responsibility, responsible leadership, and potential for continued contributions to the University. Members of All Maine Women can be distinguished by their special pins, sweaters, and the tiny pine tree they wear on their cheek one day a week and at special functions.
