Honors Program Service

Students in the Honors Program actively engage with the University and the local communities through service. The Honors Student Council's Community Service Committee works with students to develop ideas for service projects. They ensure that students have ample opportunity to fulfill the minimum 15 required volunteer hours per semester, through projects that help the University and broader community, while helping students enhance their own skills and abilities.

For example, students have:

  • Helped out at local food pantries, such as the Sharing Place and Jersey City Marketplace, and participated in the Earth Keeper's Liberty State Park clean up
  • Raised funds for causes like the Special Olympics and represented the Honors Program at events like the Stride for Change: Breast Cancer Walk
  • Assisted at Honors Program events and helped recruit new students at the Open House, Future Scholars Reception.
  • Taken the lead in university-wide events, such as a Volleyball Tournament to raise money for South Carolina flood victims
