Our honors students enjoy a rigorous, engaging and intellectually satisfying program.

Student Honors Council

The Student Honors Council is governed by honors students who represent the views of the honors students as a whole by advising the director of the Honors Program. The honors students elect the council in the spring preceding the academic year they will serve on the council. 

During the academic year, the council meets every other week. Meeting dates for 2014-15 will be announced shortly. Once a semester, there is also an Open Honors Council Meeting where all honors students are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Fr. Jim Neilson, O.Praem., adjunct assistant professor of art, will begin his much anticipated role as faculty adviser to the honors council beginning this fall. Fr. Jim plans to meet with the council members once a month.

The council sponsors social events each year such as the Christmas party and ice skating in February. The council also supports the program by helping coordinate and assist at the annual welcome back picnic; recruiting Life Raft faculty competitors and assist at the event; senior banquet planning assistance and attendance; and class representatives also promote events by notifying their class with emails, social media posts and word of mouth.

If you’re interested in being a member of the honors council, please review the executive position descriptions or decide to run as a class representative.
