Scabbard and Blade
"The Scabbard and Blade is the campus organization consisting of the top cadets on the campus enrolled in either Army or Air Force ROTC. Members are selected from cadets who have proven themselves outstanding in their military and scholastic standings.
"The purpose of the club is to promote a closer relationship between the cadets and both military departments, and to encourage and foster the essential qualities of efficient officers.
"It is a very great honor for a cadet to become a member of this organization, for it shows that he has displayed superior ability and leadership in the military field.
"Among the activities of the Scabbard and Blade are the annual Military Ball and Military Banquet."

Scabbard and Blade is a college military honor society founded at the University of Wisconsin in 1904. The society is modeled after the U.S. Army and its chapters are called companies and are organized into regiments in order of their establishment. Originally founded as a men's organization, it is now co-educational. The Clemson chapter K-7 was founded in 1933.
The national headquarters is located at Stillwater, Oklahoma.
