The most secretive of UVA's secret societies, members of the Seven Society (the 7 insignia is a secret) are only revealed after their death when a wreath of seven-shaped black magnolias is placed at the gravesite.

The formation of the society is only speculated at with the rumor that, of eight men who planned to meet for a card game, only seven showed up.

A senior society, students are "tapped" for admission during their junior year and become members during their senior year at UVA.

The group contributes financially to the University, announcing donations with letters signed only with six astronomical and one unidentifiable figure. In addition to granting spontaneous gifts, it sponsors an annual $7,000 graduate fellowship award for superb teaching
