Student Leadership & Activities

students

Honors provides students with many opportunities to participate in leadership activities within the Honors Program. Students can begin participating in leadership as early as freshman year. Read about our different leadership opportunities below, and get involved!

Honors Ambassadors

Honors Ambassadors represent the Honors Program at recruiting events such as Candidates' Weekends, the Academic Majors Fair, and on individual prospective student visits. Learn more about becoming an Honors Ambassador.

Polis Literary Magazine

Polis Literary Magazine is the Honors Program's literary magazine, written and produced entirely by Honors students. Students can participate in Polis by joining the editorial board or by contributing to a magazine issue as a writer or artist. Learn more about joining the staff of Polis.

Peer Advisors

Peer Advisors (PA's) guide other students, especially freshmen and sophomores, through the registration process. These advisors are a great resource to help peers decide on a major or a class to take, and help them plan their schedules for the following semester. Each PA is given a group of advisees and meets with them regularly in the freshman year, and later as needed. Students must be rising sophomores to apply. While the Honors Program generally solicits applications toward the end of the spring semester, you can review the application below:

Student Advisory Board

The Student Advisory Board (SAB) serves the Honors Director during two board meetings each semester to suggest improvements to the Honors Program and to provide feedback on their experience in Honors and its various programs. Students may serve on the SAB in any year, and should send a résumé and letter of intent to the Director to be considered for membership.

Honors Council

The Honors Council is comprised of Honors faculty, students, and staff, and functions as the governing body for Honors programming. The Council meets once each semester and discusses improvements and changes to the Program. The Council also votes on any changes proposed. Students may apply as positions become available. The Honors Program will notify students when applications are being accepted.

Honors Curriculum Committee

The Honors Curriculum Committee is comprised of Honors faculty, students, and staff, and functions as the governing body for Honors curriculum. The Committee meets once each semester and discusses academic changes to the Program. The Committee also votes on any changes proposed. Students may apply as positions become available. The Honors Program will notify students when applications are being accepted.
