SPHINX was founded in 1907 at The Ohio State University, making it the oldest honorary at OSU. The purpose of the society is:

  • To promote the general welfare of the University.
  • To perpetuate a society of representative seniors at The Ohio State University.
  • To cement more firmly the friendships of upperclass associations.
  • To foster a spirit which will ever remind us of the loyalty we owe our university and serve to preserve inviolate our friendship during our natural lives.

A maximum of twenty-four students can be chosen who have attained a minimum of 90 academic credit hours. Those linked into SPHINX are referred to as “links.” Eligibility is based on excellence in academics, leadership in University activities, and individual personality traits which have been instrumental in advancing the interests of the University.
