University Honors Student Association
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at UW Oshkosh! The University Honors Student Association (UHSA) creates an environment for Honors College and other UW Oshkosh students to thrive intellectually and socially through co-curricular activities designed to form well-rounded individuals in the program, the university, and the surrounding community. As a network of peers, the UHSA holds fun meetings, participates in the administration of the Honors College, plans social and cultural activities, and takes part in community service opportunities. Popular UHSA events include our biannual Pizza with Professors events, trips to attend plays and concerts, and volunteer and fundraising activities to support organizations that have included the Fox Valley Polar Plunge, Heifer International, the Oshkosh Area Humane Society, and the Shamrock Shuffle.
The UHSA is a great way to become involved in student life at UW Oshkosh, and all Honors College students are encouraged to join! You’re welcome to attend an upcoming meeting or event, or please contact any of the Executive Board members or see Liz Taylor in Oviatt House to learn more.

Interested in joining the UHSA’s Executive Board?
Participating in a student organization is a great way to get more involved in campus life, improve leadership skills, and gain practical experience while you’re enrolled in college. UHSA Executive Board members help organize events for their peers and service activities for the community. They also provide a direct link from Honors students to the Honors College administration: they offer Honors faculty, staff, and Council members a vital perspective, and their ideas and suggestions as active participants are important components to the success of the College.
