Honors Program Building/Office Hours: http://und.edu/honors-program/honorsplace.cfm
Many use the Honors Building for student group meetings, study sessions, computers (free printing for Honors classes only, please) and events. If you want to reserve a room, please see Diane Kinney during business hours (Room 7).
Thank you everyone who ran for officer positions for HPSO and who also voted, and congratulations to our new officers (Vice President: Alex Holte, Treasurer: Chase Johnson, Activities Coordinator: Autumn Clayton)!
If you cannot make this meeting, but are still interested in being involved in HPSO, feel free to email the president, Trista Kirchgesler (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Honors Program Student Organization (HSPO) is a social and intellectual group for students who are accepted into and/or are participating in the Honors Program. We encourage fellowship between Honors Students, and give feedback and support to the Honors Program. By taking an Honors class, you are automatically a member of the Honors Program Student Organization.
On a larger scale, we are a part of the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC).
From 2012 HPSO constitution: "[HPSO's] purpose and objectives are to facilitate student representation on the Honors Program Committee, to give strength and coherence to the operation of the Honors Program, and to encourage the recognition that scholarship is a primary goal of the University."
What does HPSO do?
It varies from year-to-year, but we like to provide activities for Honors Program students that encourage a learning community and "it-all-started-in-college" life-long friendships. Past activities have included an annual trip to Minneapolis for a weekend in the fall, bowling, pizza & movies, games night, a Homecoming event, and supporting students who attend the regional Honors conference each spring.
Who are the HPSO Officers for 2013-2014?
Vice President: Alex Holte
Secretary: Anna Tandberg
Treasurer: Chase Johnson
Honors Activities Coordinator: Autumn Clayton
Honors Student Government Senator: Brian Tschosik Honors Ambassador Liaison: Jasmine Joy
Honors Ambassad ors? What's that?
Honors Ambassadors are students who help with recruitment of new Honors Program students and represent our Honors Program at regional and national conferences. Many students have been active as Honors Ambassadors, making sure we get the very best students who fit with the Honors Program Goals and Missions.

The Honors Program has also had a literary magazine, called "The Forum."
Right now, we are experimenting with an on-line version, but here are links to previous editions:
The Forum - Spring 2012
