Honors Program students show their Ashland University spirit
The Honors Society is a student-run organization that plans a variety of social, educational, and service events for Honors Program students, thereby strengthening the learning community by building friendships outside the classroom.
The Society kicked off the 2012/2013 academic year on August 24th and 25th with its 5th Annual Honors Program Retreat at Camp Nuhop in Perrysville, Ohio. Students participated in a book discussion about the summer reading, The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner's Semester at America'sHoliest University by Kevin Roose, and enjoyed a number of team building activities. The annual retreat provides an opportunity for the Honors Program freshmen to meet many of the current Honors Program students.
Previous Honors Society events held during the academic year include game nights, Pizza with the Profs, a trip to see a unique Indonesian puppet show, wallyball at the Rec Center, and an annual Ugly Sweater/White Elephant Holiday Party. Recent Society service projects include Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, Adopt-a-Family for Christmas, participating in Relay for Life, and collecting supplies for the Ashland Rape Crisis Domestic Violence Safe Haven.
