Honors Commuters Association (HCA)

Do you like playing games? Do you like having a good group of friends? Do you like to have fun? If you answered YES to any of these questions, then join the Honors Commuter Association! We meet for about an hour on a weekly basis in the Honors Common Room. We play either a card game or board game, it is a great stress reliever. If you can't stay the whole time and can only come for a little while that is OK! Despite the name, this group is open to all students but is an active group specifically designed for honors commuters... so tell your friends!


Honors Nursing Group (HNG)

Honors Nursing Group was founded in 2007, especially for Honors students studying nursing, however, it is open to all Honors students. Meetings are generally held once a month in the Honors Common Room. Our group participates in service activities that have included blanket making for Akron Children’s Hospital, canned food drives, card making for patients, Make a Difference Day, etc. Programming has included alumni speaking about their nursing experiences, and faculty from the College of Health Professions speaking about the programs in nursing.
