"A year and a half ago, when I found out I was moving to Nebraska, abandoning my charming Tennessee life to go and live among the corn, I was feeling less than adventurous. When I actually made it out here, not only did I discover that corn is not ubiquitous but also that the people here are so nice that they made their “nice” their state slogan. Attending UNO has only reinforced my fondness for Nebraska and I could not be more proud to have an active role in such a great university and its honors program. I love being a part of HSA because it allows me to work with other students to make awesome things, like our biannual blood drive, happen. From free printing and access to a refrigerator to opportunities to conduct undergraduate research with an honors faculty member as a freshwoman, the honors program has enriched my UNO experience so much that I want to make sure everyone knows what the honors program can do for them. As an HSA officer on the executive board, I view my position first and foremost as being a student representative; I want to serve as a conduit between the general honors population and the people who make things happen. When I’m not taking advantage of the honors lounge in Kayser, you can find me stumbling through the halls of Allwine (which, despite the fact that it is a square building, I still get lost in--I think it’s the multiple staircases); as a biotechnology major with a pre-med focus I spend a lot of time in there. While I may get lost in the science buildings, I know my way around a kitchen and love to cook and bake. It is my firm belief that sharing home baked cookies will liven up any class or meeting".
The Honors Student Association (HSA) is the name of your Honors student body representatives. This group meets monthly with the Director and bi-weekly as a group; they plan events and social gatherings to serve you, so be a part of it! Join the meetings, and find out how you can be involved. The first meeting of the new academic year was held in August and there are many events coming up:

The University Honors Program piloted a Common Reader for students in Fall 2015, as all incoming first-year students joining the Program received a copy of Daniel James Brown’s The Boys in the Boat (2014) to read over the summer. We met to discuss the text in small groups with faculty, staff, and students immediately before Fall Convocation, and then had a series of events connected to the text, such as a tailgate social, service project, and luncheon with a guest speaker. The pilot was so well received that the effort was expanded across campus in 2016, when we read Matt Richtel's A Deadly Wandering: click here for Fall 2017’s information.
We enjoyed talking about Matt Richtel's A Deadly Wandering last fall...
