Honors Student Association

The Honors Student Association (HSA) provides members with opportunities to participate in social, academic, and community service events. HSA is a fun way to network with like-minded students who want to get involved on and near campus.

The HSA engages students in activities that build upon the four pillars of the Honors College: community, service, research and career.

Community

HSA members learn about Wayne State University and the surrounding community by:

  • Exploring nightlife in Greektown
  • Attending performances at the Hilberry Theatre
  • Ice skating at Campus Martius
  • Taking in a film at The New Detroit Science Center's IMAX Dome Theatre

Service

HSA members assist both the university and area social service agencies through various activities, including:

  • Volunteering as student hosts during Scholars Day
  • Building homes with Habitat for Humanity
  • Helping the Wayne State University Press with a book launch/fundraiser
  • Raising money for The Heat and Warmth Fund (THAW) to help households struggling to pay their winter heat and electric bills

Research

Meeting fellow students through HSA is a smart and easy way to form study groups that help members prepare for the academic rigor of an urban research university.

Career

With all the opportunities HSA provides, participants are well prepared for success. Members sharpen their leadership skills by planning activities and strengthen their organizational abilities by helping with special events while engaging with Honors faculty and staff. These skills are tremendous assets to take into the job market and include in your resume.
