Ad Honorem

Ad Honorem, the Honors Student Council, represents you to the Honors faculty. The Council also oversees use of the Honors student lounge, sends delegates to the national honors conference, and helps to organize field trips, class projects, and symposia. Please feel free to bring questions and concerns to any members of Ad Honorem. They are elected by you, and they are ready and willing to help in whatever way they can.
