The Spring bus trip this year is to New York City on Saturday, April 14, 2018. During the spring 2017 trip, the students saw a performance of the Broadway Show "Cats!"
Those students who have been active participants of HCSA during the fall 2017 semester and completed at least 3 community service requirements for the year by March 8, 2018 will be the first students offered the chance to sign up for this bus trip.
As you know, the Honors College at Millersville University offers talented, highly motivated students (such as yourself) the personalized attention of a small liberal arts school while drawing upon the resources of MU as a whole. The college aims to provide exceptional opportunities normally found only at expensive private institutions.
Although your classmates may look different, think differently, and even speak differently, they have one important trait in common--the desire to succeed. The MUHC features students that aren't afraid to debate different ideas, explore new pathways, or even share a few thoughts about popular culture.
Beginning with the fall 2018 semester, Honors College students are required to participate in 6 community service projects each year. This is revised from the 4 projects in previous years. Participation in the Day of Caring during early September is a required community service project for all Freshmen and is a part of the Honors Freshmen Experience.
You also must complete 25 semester hours of Honors coursework including the senior thesis, have a 3.2 overall GPA AND a 3.35 GPA in Honors coursework, in order to graduate from the University Honors College.
