Honors College Student Council
The Honors College Student Council, established in the fall of 1987, has a mission to "promote a sense of community within the Honors College and enable the personal growth and academic success of all Honors students." Honors College Student Council (HCSC) was established by current Honors College students and administration. Through Council-sponsored events, Honors student have the opportunity of meeting other students, mingling with Dean Silverman and other administrators, questioning advisors and learning about campus projects and organizations.
Amanda began her involvement with HCSC in the fall of her freshman year in 2011, and carried her commitment and work through the spring 2012 semester. Through her participation, Amanda helped to create, plan, organize, work, execute, and participate in the events hosted by the Events Committee. The Events Committee allows Honors students to take a role in leadership, tasks, ideas, and creativity to create the events to be at their highest standard. With the Events Committee Amanda helped with countless events, such as the Annual Fall Picnic, 80's dance night, the Honors Talent Show, Underground Blackout dance, Annual Spring Picnic, Brain Bowl Tournament, becoming the temporary co-chair for the new member event in end of the first semester, attending general council meetings, and volunteering at events organized/created by the Volunteer Committee.
In March 2012, Amanda was accepted to be on the Executive Board for Honors Council for the 2012-2013 school year, where she was asked to be the Vice President for Council. The leadership board is responsible for overseeing the progress of the Events, Volunteer, and Advertising committees in council. The board verifies that the goals and mission of council are being met at each and every event. It is also the board's personal goal to focus on the growth of the council members and the executive board.
As Vice President, Amanda's duties include assisting the President in leading executive and general meetings, facilitating committee chairs with advertising, volunteering and social event planning, as well as overall promotion of Honors Council endeavors. She is held accountable to remain dedicated to represent Council and uphold its values and attitudes at all times, and to promote community among the Honors College. Amanda strives to foster a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood in the Council. Amanda prides herself on being a "Face-of-Honors-Council," and encourages her Honors classmates and friends to get involved within the University, and take advantage of all the activities and benefits of the Honors College!
