Honors students are involved inside and outside of the classroom. We offer numerous ways for our students to contribute to Honors, Temple, and to the Philadelphia community and beyond through our student organizations—run by students, for students.
Honors Activities Board
The Honors Activities Board organizes social, cultural and academic programming for the Honors Program at Temple University. Some highlights include murder mystery dinners, trips to Philly events, and a year-end Honors Ball!
Honors Admissions and Transitions Team
Members of the Honors Admissions and Transitions Team (called Honors Ambassadors) help prospective students learn about Temple and the Honors Program by showing them campus, experiencing Honors classes, and visiting the living-learning community. Honors Ambassadors are also present at summer orientation to help with freshman registration.
Honors Appalachia takes students to various locales to engage in service-learning through building homes, learning about other cultures, and more! It encourages students to engage in volunteer work throughout Philadelphia over the course of the academic year, culminating in a week-long excursion that immerses students in the life, beauty, and struggles of the Appalachian region.
Honorables of Color
The Honorables of Color is a discussion group for students of color in the Temple University Honors Program. These gatherings offer minority Honors students an opportunity to share their experiences, discuss social issues, network across academic majors, and connect with campus faculty and staff of color in order to build a sense of community at Temple.
Honors Community Outreach
Honors Community Outreach is a group of students dedicated to strengthening community relationships. In addition to promoting volunteerism, HCO also hosts workshops and trainings to be a better member of the North Philly community during our time at Temple.
Honors Peer Mentors
The Honors Peer Mentors are resources and guides in helping students transition to the Honors community, connect to campus and city resources, and develop skills for the current and future success.
Honors Social Media Team
Yes, we're an organization of the times and we have social media. Luckily, each of our accounts is run by students, so the content is cool. Follow us @TempleHonors on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat.
