HPSC Spring Dance

The Honors Program Student Council (HPSC) is comprised of roughly 20 students dedicated to enhancing the Honors experience and engaging their peers in the Honors community. HPSC hosts a wide variety of events, and past favorites include Flipping Out Over Finals, Dinner with Dr. Williams, the Honors Art Show, and an end-of-the-year dance. HPSC also serves as a liaison between the Honors administration and the student body.

Follow HPSC on Facebook.

HPSC members serve on one of two committees: the Service Committee or the Programming Committee. Meetings alternate weekly between the general body and executive board on Mondays at 8 p.m. Applications open each semester to first- and second-years interested in dedicating themselves to the Honors community.
