Community and Institutional Service
Part of being an Honors student is learning to be a responsible, community-conscious adult. One way the Honors Program encourages its members to develop is by getting them involved in community service. As part of their community service activities, Honors students tutor local public school students, host blood drives (in conjunction with LifeSouth), make frequent visits to the local animal shelter, sponsor a Relay For Life team, help the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, serve the elderly and impoverished through Action, Inc., and assist with academic and spelling competitions held on campus.
In addition to working in the surrounding community, Honors students have opportunities to serve their campus community by volunteering to help with student activities, plan and host academic conferences, represent the Honors Program at UNG Open Houses, speak with students at NSO, assist new students with registration, and manage various tasks that are crucial to running the Honors Program itself.
