Established in 1845, this organization was for many years the oldest cadet society on campus. It usually had about 50 members from all four classes. Any Citadel student could join the society and meetings were open to all. It no longer functions. Its motto was "Sapere audi," Latin for "Dare to Know" (or "Dare to Be Wise"). The line was taken from Horace, Epistles I.ii . (Source for quotation: Bergen Evans, Dictionary of Quotations, p. 756. REF PN6081 .E9)
