Dear BSU Honors Student,
First off, I would like to congratulate you on your many accomplishments and successes during your time in the Honors Program here at Bridgewater State University. Your accomplishments, whether it be serving as a role model in an organization or athletic team, studying abroad, receiving a scholarship or grant, completing an honors thesis, or excelling in an academic setting, do not go unrecognized. On behalf of the Honors Student Congress, I would like to congratulate you on all of the great things you have accomplished already this year!
The Honors Student Congress may sound a little unfamiliar to you, and this is because last year, a group of Honors students started a new organization called the Honors Student Council. In the past year, we have begun to grow, expand, and program events. This November, myself and three other students were able to attend the National Collegiate Honors Council National Conference in New Orleans with Amy Couto, Dr. Gross, and Dr. King. Through this conference, we met student leaders from across the country and gained some insight on how to make the Honors experience for students a more enjoyable and fun experience.
With that being said, I would like to formally announce the creation of the Honors Student Congress and invite you to become a part of our organization. This is a great way to get involved on campus and we are very much looking forward to new members. Our four committees are Outreach, Scholarship, Programming & Fundraising, and Service. We are already planning on hosting some great events this semester including movie nights, blood drives, serving dinner at Father Bill’s, a Casino Night, and a dance following our annual Spring Dinner on April 22nd. If you are interested in being a part of the Honors Student Congress, our meetings are every other Thursday from 5-6 P.M. in the Academic Achievement Center Conference Room. Feel free to email me with any questions you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the Best,
Honors Student Congress, President
