Honors Student Association (HSA)

As a member of the Honors College, you are automatically a member of HSA. The association provides opportunities for Honors students to participate in a wide variety of cultural and recreational activities. It sponsors lectures, social events, and community service projects that encourage students and faculty members to explore common interests outside of the classroom. HSA is a great way to meet other Honors students, learn leadership skills, and stay in touch with the university community.
