At any point during their career, students on our Statesboro campus may meet with our Honors Advising Coordinator, Erin Martin, and students on our Armstrong Campus may meet with our Honors Advisor, Sarah McHugh.
Incoming first year students will be required to meet with the Honors Advisor on their home campus during their fall term while incoming transfer students will be required to meet at the start of their first term at Georgia Southern. Additionally, any current Georgia Southern students admitted to the Honors Program will be required to meet for advisement upon acceptance of their invitation to join.
While students in their sophomore through senior years will not be required to meet with the Honors Advisor each semester, they are encouraged to take advantage of this resource by scheduling an appointment at least once per year. Doing so can assist students in monitoring their progress through Honors Program requirements as well as provide additional support and guidance related to the thesis project, experiential learning, research opportunities, nationally competitive scholarships, and post-graduate plans.
Advisement through the University Honors Program is designed to supplement the advisement students receive through their home colleges or departments and is not a replacement for such.
Honors Advisors will:
- Seek to provide accurate guidance, information and assistance to students as they progress through their academic career
- Ensure students understand and are progressing through University Honors Program requirements in a timely and thoughtful manner
- Provide guidance on experiential learning, nationally competitive scholarships, and prospective study abroad trips as well as link students with other relevant opportunities to supplement their classroom learning
- Provide support and feedback to students regarding their honors related questions and concerns
