Through the Honors Student Advisory Committee (HSAC), Honors students are provided opportunities for research, networking, transfer/scholarship guidance, professional development and mentoring. HSAC leaders have access to Honors House (M222), which serves as the hub of the Honors Program student community. They hold office hours and organize student- and alumni-led transfer workshops and community service activities. Student research mentoring is offered by Honors faculty in the form of individualized support, and Honors faculty-led research workshops. Students are given the opportunity to present at NCHC, Northeast Regional Honors Council and other conventions. And they have opportunities to work on the HSAC Newsletter, Honors Journal, and student research activities. Honors students also tap into HSAC’s substantial online and annual transfer and scholarship guides, and receive dedicated transfer guidance from Honors faculty and alumni. Honors students can participate in the Friends of Koch Program for Honors students, which includes paid internships for students interested in public service. They are also eligible for opportunities to be connected to successful professionals for one-on-one mentoring. Further, through HSAC, Honors students also have the opportunity to organize civic engagement events (e.g. fundraisers, and consciousness-raising events about social justice issues).
