Golden Key is the world’s premier collegiate honor society, recognizing outstanding academic achievement and connecting high-achieving individuals locally, regionally & globally with lifetime opportunity, reward & success. This is the official Facebook page of the Waikato Chapter.
Golden Key was founded in 1977 in Georgia State University, and has since been joined by over 350 collegiate chapters from Australia, Canada, Malaysia, the United States of America, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and New Zealand. In 2003 the society celebrated a decade of international development with 30 chapters in the Asia-Pacific region.
The University of Waikato Chapter was founded on 30 October 1999, and has since inducted more than 3,000 members into the society. Membership is extended to the top 15% of undergraduate degree students in the University, and the society forbids discrimination of any kind other than academic merit.
The University of Waikato Chapter's goals are
• to raise the profile of Golden Key in the community, schools and on campus
• to return benefits to the community
• to maximise the potential of University students.
The Waikato Chapter is involved in many projects, both academic and community service based. The chapter is regularly involved with various local environmental efforts and other volunteer activities each year. Student members annually run the Daffodil Day fundraising at the University for the Cancer Society, and endeavour to engage both university and local school students in an academic sense, holding literacy based fundraising or volunteer efforts. In 2009 the Waikato Chapter was awarded with the societies highest standing - a gold rating, based on the community service events and activities held in 2008.
Membership into Golden Key can greatly enhance students' academic careers, and members are well received by many Universities and organisations around the world.
