This is one of the most important days to ensure financial support to the Honors Program and allows us to continue to provide opportunities to our members.


Best of luck to anyone who still has to register this month!

If you have any issues with scheduling Honors classes for the Fall Semester, please go directly to Dr. Dierenfield with questions.

Boston Travel and Learn

Activities include volunteering at a local soup kitchen and visiting various sites to take in the rich historic culture of Boston.

Safe travels to all those participating!

Reminder: If you are interested in going on a Travel and Learn Trip in the future, it is important that you actively attend HSA events, as such students are given preference to going on the trip.
