Joining HSC

Committee Members

Any Honors student can serve as a committee member on the HSC committees, which include: Service, Academics, Events/Programming, General Committee, Public Relations, Enrichment, and Fundraising. Interested students can express their interest to the HSC Executive Board. Additionally, at the beginning of each academic year, the Honors Community will be notified of information in joining the Honors Student Council. Students should commit to participating in the committee for a full academic year.

Executive Board

Midway through the Spring semester interested students can campaign to become the Chair or Co-Chair of HSC. These positions will be elected via HSC member voting. Once elected, the Chair and Co-Chair will accept applications from existing HSC members in becoming committee chairs or the secretary. The Chair and Co-Chair will interview and select the committee chairs to serve on the HSC for the following school year.
