We wanted to leave a legacy for the future Honors students of GSU!
In 2014, the GSU Honors Program Class year wanted to leave a legacy to represent the transition and revamping of the Honors Program. Our class was split into groups that would endeavor to make some changes that would help promote who and what the Honors Program represents. You will see an over view of those projects and the goal that was set out to be accomplished.
The first group consisted of myself, LaTonia Ames-Sheared, Marlene Lees, Desmond Warren, and Sandi Gustafson. Our team's endeavor was to create a webpage for the Honors Program that would enable existing and future honors students to have access to information regarding our Honors program. This webpage provides a look into what you can experience and anticipate from becoming a member. The webpage includes static and dynamic pages to provide the information necessary to educate, motivate and inspire the potential Honors student.
As you browse through, our goal was to answer questions anyone might have about the Honors Program and give insight to what this program is about. We each selected what we wanted to contribute and then collaborated as a group to make sure it would be feasible to carry out. We also wanted to leave it open to future students to update after we have graduated. While it is a tremendous honor to be a member of the group we also want to impress that we are group that as leaders want to give back our group and local communities. We are sure that as you explore the page in its entirety, you will appreciate the hard work and effort put forth to make this page a reality. Our group considers it to be a tremendous accomplishment.

The second group consists of Nathan Davis, Mary Beth Lunter, and Estefania Palafox. There endeavor is also a great contribution to assisting to transform the Honors Program to a better program by forming a student advisory committee.
Their effort will encompass composing a mission statement, laying bylaws, and recruiting board members. This effort is to help empower the students of the Honors Program and create ownership of the program which will increase participation. The input from students will also give insight to the Honors program faculty and leadership, that otherwise may not be expressed or heard. This would also be a first for our GSU Honors Program.
As our groups have come together to set practices in place to help the sustainability and attractiveness to the revamped Honors Program, our goals are to attract and motivate the current and new students to get involved now.
