The NSU Undergraduate Honors Program provides a value-added experience for highly motivated and high-achieving undergraduate students.

Honors students can take advantage of a unique leadership opportunity by becoming Honors Advocates. An Honors Advocate is a liaison for the Honors student population. Honors advocates are directly involved in the planning and coordination of Honors Program activities and initiatives, serve as a programming board, along with Honors Program faculty and serve under direction of the college's Office of the Dean.

Why Become an Honors Advocate?
