Excolo and Groups

Seminary's campus activities requirement is administered through the EXCOLO program. All freshmen and sophomores must earn two participation credits in campus activities, while new juniors, seniors and postgraduates must earn one credit. Any questions about EXCOLO can be directed to Mr. Harry Shafer, Director of Student Activities, at hshafer@wyomingseminary.org.

Wyoming Seminary Community Service Executive Committee members organize service events and activities throughout the year. Incoming freshman and sophomores have to complete 40 hours of community service, and new juniors must complete 20 hours, and one-year seniors must acquire 10 hours. To make sure that students receive credit for their community service hours, there are two forms below that must be filled out and handed in to their class dean. All students are welcome to attend monthly meeting. The advisor Community Service is Mrs. Elaine Burg.

Cum Laude
Wyoming Seminary’s Cum Laude chapter was founded in 1930. Senior student members are elected in the fall and in the spring. These students must have a junior year average of at least 3.4 (out of a possible 4.0) and have had no junior grade below “C-.” At the end of the senior year, more students may be inducted, bringing the total to no more than 20% of the senior class. At the end of the senior year, inductees must have attained a cumulative average during their junior and senior years of at least 3.1 and no grade below “C-.”

Blue Key
Blue Key is a student ambassador organization that primarily helps the Admission and Alumni offices. Blue Key members serve as student representatives at admission, alumni, development and presidential activities, and as on-campus hosts for all campus visitors. Advisor: Julie Strzeletz.
