Programming Board

Honors Programming Board



The Honors College Programming Board is a student group responsible for planning social, academic, service, and professional development events for honors students. They do incredible work, including planning Geek Week and the Honors College’s involvement in Homecoming each year. This is an excellent opportunity to get more involved in Honors, network with Honors staff and faculty, and have fun! Potential members must be in good standing with the Honors College, be able to commit to biweekly meeting attendance, and attend events as assigned throughout the semester.
