HSO Logo

The Honors Student Organization (HSO) focuses its efforts in four main areas: community service, extracurricular social events, community building outreach, and professional development. Honors students are also encouraged to initiate their own groups and projects that are supported and facilitated by the HSO advisor and officers.

The HSO offers Honors students an opportunity to extend what they are learning beyond the walls of the classroom to the larger world and, in the process, build a strong sense of community with their peers, faculty and staff members. All UW students are welcome to join the Honors Student Organization and work together to create the best undergraduate experience possible at the UW.
