The University Honors Program recognizes and appreciates the importance of creating spaces for students to cultivate community outside of the classroom and to grow as leaders. Our program is in a phase of growth and expansion, and so we are excited to begin to offer a range of options for budding student servant-leaders, including the Honors Student Association (HSA) and the new Student Advisory Committee (SAC).
Honors Student Association (HSA)
The Honors Student Association, an FSU Registered Student Organization, strives to support and enrich the honors student experience through student-planned initiatives including social events, service opportunities, professional development workshops, and peer mentorship. All honors students are part of the HSA membership, reflecting our belief in providing a welcoming community for each student.
HSA hosts a wide variety of events each year, including one of FSU Honors’ most beloved traditions, the HSA monthly breakfast, as well as trivia and board game nights and holiday socials. HSA also involves students in important service events on campus, such as the Relay for Life and Light the Night, and hosts a Peer Mentoring Initiative, where students can sign up to be either a mentee or mentor.
The HSA online magazine, The Medallion, is written and edited by members of the executive board and highlights campus resources and spaces, as well as various aspects of student life. Each edition is centered around a particular theme and showcases the academic and creative work of our student community.
HSA provides students with great opportunities to get involved and to develop their leadership, with yearly elections each fall. To receive notifications about HSA, students are encouraged to join NoleCentral and follow HSA on Instagram.
Students pay yearly HSA Membership Dues that fund all the activities HSA does during the year. Students may pay their dues here:

Student Advisory Committee (SAC)
Beginning in Fall 2023, students will have the opportunity to assist the staff of the University Honors Program at social and intellectual events, serve as a public face of the program around campus and in the greater community, and act as liaisons between the program and the greater Honors student community regarding the academic and co-curricular life of the program. More information about this new and very important committee will be forthcoming this summer. Applications will open August 2023.
