All-College Honors Newsletter Early-October EDITION: 2015

Thank you for your attention and time in opening this email. The All-College Honors Program's Student Board and newly founded Honors Student Association is proud to present our second bi-weekly newsletter.

This is an effort to increase effective communication within the Honors Program without having an excessive number of emails.

During the academic year, we anticipate disseminating this newsletter at the beginning and middle of every month. Newsletters will feature important information. They will highlight exciting, innovating, and even educational events that are sponsored by either HSB (Honors Student Board) or HSA (Honors Student Association).

CONGRATULATIONS: The Class of 2019 Elections produced a great team of 3 representatives and 2 alternates.  They will serve on the HSA and HSB representing the Class of 2019. They are as listed below.
