The ANAK Society selects seniors who exhibit a true love for Georgia Tech through their campus involvement and compassion for their fellow students. Pre-1961, members were publicly selected at the semi-annual IFC (inter-fraternity council) dances when they were "tapped" on the shoulder. Since 1961, membership in ANAK has been secret. Only when members reach graduation are they publicly announced in the Technique and on this website. Most of the work of ANAK is conducted anonymously with members seeking no recognition for their service.
