"When I think of the Honors Program, I think of scholarship and community. The smaller classes and the amazing faculty really force students out of their comfort zones and push them to take on a role of active learning. The Honors Program has given me lifelong friendships with my peers and professional relationships with professors that I would have never gained otherwise. I wanted to join the Honors Program Student Association to help foster similar experiences for other students and to keep pushing this amazing program forward for future students."

"The Honors Program has provided  me with ample opportunities to better my relationships with faculty and staff and better serve the community of Augusta. Through this program, I have gotten more involved on campus and built a diverse and intelligent community and network of accountability that supports me through every occasion. Through the service that the Honors Program provides, I have been able to not only serve locals in Augusta, but grow in each of my relationships with fellow honors members. The Honors Program is a great way to give back to the community, the school, and yourself. I cannot wait to see how the Honors Program continues to grow through the coming years, as we work together to create even more opportunities for future and current students!"

“Being a part of the Honors Program has played a pivotal role in my academic career at Augusta University.  Each class has influenced my career path in some way, shape, or form, and beneficial relationships between professors and me have emerged from the process.  As an upperclassman, I see the importance and value of building up the Honors Program for the students to come.  I know the program is getting bigger and I want to a part of that growth, which is why I decided to become an officer.  One thing I choose to focus on in a leadership position is this: “The hard work done today is for those of tomorrow.”

"I love the Honors Program at Augusta University and am excited about this upcoming school year.  I use the Honors building everyday and frequently store both my lunch and dinner in the fridge. The Honors Program has enabled me to make valuable friendships with other Honors students who have helped me to grow as a person. Honors classes are definitely my favorite because the smaller classes provoke thoughtful discussions with my classmate and professors. I hope that I can give back to the program that has given me so much, especially during my freshman year of college."

"Even though this is only my first year at Augusta University, I can truly say that I have never felt a more welcoming and encouraging environment, a feeling which motivated me be involved with the Honors Program from the very beginning. I love the enthusiasm and dedication of our honors students, and through smaller honors classes, I have already built many new friendships and gotten optimal interaction with my professors. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this amazing group of individuals, and as Service Chair I hope to further promote our program and provide a platform for myself and our students to give back to our university and our community. I am excited to see the opportunities that this year presents and for the new adventures that await me these next four years!."

"The honors program is a place where I can push myself to new boundaries and learn more about myself. I enjoy spending time at the honors building to study and get to know other people. I've always enjoyed coming to the events the HPSA has and am excited to be able to come up with event ideas and execute them with my committee as a way for students to meet others who have similar goals to them and spend time with their friends.
