Honorary tapping provides Florida Blue Key with the opportunity to recognize individuals who have contributed their time and directed their efforts to enhance the University of Florida. By tapping such individuals, we are not only enhancing the integrity of the chapter, but the honorary members themselves value the recognition that they receive from Florida’s most prestigious leadership honorary.
Since the spring of 2009 we have inducted honorary tapping classes annually as opposed to bi-annually. The intent of
this change was to focus on making the honorary tapping experience more meaningful for those inducted. It goes without
saying that Florida Blue Key members who were tapped as students and those as honorary members have a different
perspective of our organization. This years honorary tapping class will have available to them a full calendar of events and
personal interaction that will immerse them in all aspects of Florida Blue Key, from VIP access throughout Homecoming and Gator Growl to Legislative Day in Tallahassee.
