About Us

Mission Statement


The Honors Congress exists to strengthen the Honors community by providing academic, volunteer and social outlets for Honors students. True excellence arises not from mere academics, but from a rounded character demonstrating a commitment to community involvement and integrity in all endeavors. With this in mind, the Honors Congress is committed to developing a diversified student body. The Honors Congress fosters a spirit of unity through the facilitation of social, academic and volunteer activities and cultivates a sense of community within Burnett Honors College.



Honors Congress is the official student organization of The Burnett Honors College. You can become a member as soon as you enter UCF and BHC! As a member, you immediately obtain access to the following throughout your college semesters:

  • Academic/Social/Volunteer/Housing/Campus-Specific/Philanthropy events

  • Leadership opportunities

  • The chance to join our Knight-Thon team

  • The chance to join our Relay for Life team

  • Workshops/luncheons

  • A mentorship program

New events produced by the officer board are announced monthly through general body meetings and KnightConnect. Members have the chance to obtain Distinguished Member (DM) points by participating in these monthly events; those who become Distinguished Members get to attend a special event at the end of every Fall and Spring semester.
