Honors Serves is a new organization within the Honors College and offers a great opportunity for you to become involved in service within the community. The “k(no)w poverty?” program, hosted by the Honors College, led to a greater awareness surrounding the issues of poverty. This inspired students to get involved with community organizations that combat poverty. Student-led and focused on service through education, Honors Serves partners with local high schools and resource centers to develop study skills and preparation for the ACT and SAT tests while also providing opportunities to serve through Hospice Advantage and Alabama Rural Ministry (i.e. housing/construction projects). To sign up or for more information about Honors Serves, please email Payton Davis, president.
Each year Honors College student organizations host the year’s first event for incoming Honors students: the Freshmen Frenzy.
