"I am a third-year majoring in Cell and Molecular Biology with a minor in Chemistry in a Pre-med Track. The Honors Program is a place that I can call my home away from home. The great relationship between my peers, smaller classes, being pushed out of my comfort zone, and amazing faculty are a few of the things that make up the Honors Program. The Quad wall building is the place where hard-work, gatherings, and friendships are seen in the daily. I could not think of going through my college years without being part of the Honors Program. By acting as the president of HPSA, I have the opportunity to assist in making the transition into college easier for incoming honor’s students and showcase all the amazing things the program has to offer. Overall, the Honors program is more than a program, it's a community."
"I am a Chemistry major on the Professional track with intentions to go to graduate school for Medicinal Chemistry. In my free time I enjoy reading, hanging out with friends, and making science memes! The reason I chose to work with the Honors Program Student Association is that I wanted to contribute to finding new ways to get more students involved in the program. I encourage every student to be an active member of the Honors Program because it has provided me with much more than just advancing my education. The faculty and students will encourage you to not just succeed, but to excel. There will be many lifelong friendships and memories created in the honors classes and in the Quad Wall. I am excited to keep being involved in helping many more students accept everything the program has to offer!"
"I am a second year Art major with a concentration in Graphic Design. While I’m not entirely certain where this journey will begin, my end goal is to someday have a studio of my own working with people from all concentrations. If it’s art, I have probably tried-emphasis here on tried - to make it a hobby but not always succeeded. Dragons are kind of my thing, just ask anyone who has wandered past the art labs. I am originally from Texas (if you can relate we’ll get along just fine), so I love a good two-step and sky as far as the eye can see. I’m not picky with my free time, but I most enjoy spending time at the range, playing video games, being outdoors, or just reading a good book. Disclaimer, that book is probably actually a series and it’s probably super 'nerdy', so feel free to rant to me in Elvish about how that one character doesn’t even exist in the books. That brings me to the Honors Program here at Augusta University, one of the best places to go to really be yourself with people who appreciate that. My decision to work with and be involved in HPSA came after seeing just how much support comes from this group of people. It was the family I found in the Honors Program that reminded me that college can be an enormous opportunity to make healthy memories and life decisions. My goal here is to continue to welcome people into that family and give them a home away from home at the Quad. I look forward to meeting you all!"
