The Honors Student Council (HSC) is comprised of roughly 25 students dedicated to enhancing the Honors experience and engaging their peers in the Honors community. It is comprised of five committees: Programming, Communications, Diversity and Inclusion, Peer Assisted Leadership (PAL), and Service. HSC hosts a wide variety of events, and past favorites include Flipping Out Over Finals, Dinner with Dr. Williams, the Let's Talk About It Series, and the annual Honors Dance. The Council also serves as a liaison between the Honors administration and the student body.

Applications open each November to first- and second-years interested in dedicating themselves to the Honors community.
