Honors College Student Association (HCSA)

The Honors College Student Association (HCSA) is an organization for all HC students. Students in this student organization are involved in campus activities in both big and small ways. A shared leadership structure allows for empowerment of HC students in large Honors decisions. HCSA meets weekly to plan academic events, social gatherings, service projects, and trips. HCSA events include:

  • Student organized trips, including camping, skiing, and hiking
  • Annual forums on topics affecting students
  • Annual organization and participation in the OSU Food Drive
  • Annual coordination and selection of Outstanding HC Professor award
  • Quarterly community service projects
  • Quarterly study breaks

In addition to activities, members of the student organization serve as student representatives of the HC. In this way, HCSA provides as a place where students can voice their concerns and give feedback the college.

If you are interested in joining the Honors College Student Association, you are welcome to attend their weekly meetings posted on the HC Calendar, contact the HC office in LInC 450, or email hcsc@oregonstate.edu

 

Monday Message

The Monday Message is a weekly Honors College newsletter sent out at the beginning of every week during fall, winter, and spring terms. It contains important information about HC events, opportunities, and deadlines, as well as campus-wide announcements that are especially relevant to HC students, faculty, and staff. Each message includes a table of contents, so topics that are of particular interest to you are easily and quickly accessible. All HC students are strongly encouraged to review the Monday Message contents each week, as it is the best (and sometimes only) source of information about a wide variety of opportunities, events, and news that can make a big difference in your HC and Oregon State experience. Just in case you miss a message, they are all posted here on the HC website.
