The purpose of the Honors Involvement Program (HIP) is to encourage students to be
engaged with the Judy Genshaft Honors College outside of the classroom. HIP is managed
by the Judy Genshaft Honors College Student Council (JGHCSC). The Judy Genshaft Honors
College hosts multiple events throughout the year that are geared towards promoting
social connectivity between students, faculty, and staff. In addition to leadership
& professional development workshops, the honors college hosts an annual art show,
talent show, fall picnic, and many more! Some of the events center around study abroad,
internship, and research opportunities, so please keep your eye out for those! Students
who are interested in networking with other honors students, and honors faculty/staff
should attend these events
Students are encouraged to attend at least five Honors events. The list of events
will be updated throughout the semester and can be found through using this website. On
the RSVP website, there is a drop-down menu listed under “Search by Category.” Students
should be able to select events that will count towards “Involvement,” and see the
entire list of events that are considered a part of the involvement program.
Students must RSVP and then check into the event on the day of.
Objectives of the Honors Involvement Program are as follows:
Students will gain one point per event they attend and check-in to.

After a student gains five (5) Involvement Points, they will be eligible to earn an
exclusive Honors long-sleeve T-shirt. At any time, students may email the USF Judy Genshaft Honors College Student Council to see how many points they have or will need to get this prize.
The top ten (10) students with the highest number of involvement Points will be invited
