The Wren Society is a student secret society at William & Mary. Founded in 1832 to honor the 200th Anniversary of the birthday of Sir Christopher Wren, students are "tapped" into the society based on their dedication to commitment to service, academics, and their demonstration of exception leadership in the College community.

A note about the contents of this site

This website contains the best available information from known sources at the time it was written.

The information in this website is not complete, and it changes as we continue to research and uncover new sources.
