Summary: 2011 Application for First and Second Years
The purpose of the Honors Program Student Council (HPSC) is to coordinate academic, social,
and service functions to promote the Honors community. It also serves as a liaison between the
Honors student body and the Honors Program staff and administration. HPSC is comprised of
14-18 members, who are divided into two committees--the Service Committee and the
Programming Committee. HPSC has five officers, comprised of returning members--president,
secretary, treasurer, and chairs of the Service and Programming committees.
HPSC Programming sponsors such events as the Fall Bash, Flipping Out Over Finals, Open Mic
with Dr. Williams, Honors Student Art Show, Night on the Quad, lectures by professors, and
information sessions for pre-medical and pre-law students. HPSC Service sponsors service
projects at places such as the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia and the Thomas Lay Center,
supports campus organizations such as UGA's AIDS Walk/Run Athens, and organizes talks on
issues such as recycling and non-profit management.
This year HPSC will add current first years and sophomores to the current members. Preference
is given to applicants who are willing to make a two-year commitment. We encourage all eligible
candidates to apply who are seeking civic engagement opportunities within the Honors
community. Meetings are held alternate Mondays from 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. You must be available
at that time in order to participate in HPSC. Members are expected to attend all of their
committee's events and are required to attend 2/3 of all HPSC events.
