What is a
Every month, the officer board produces and announces new events (Academic, Social, Volunteer, Housing, Fundraising, Special Events, Philanthropy, and workshops/luncheons) you can attend to receive Distinguished Member points.
Each semester, Honors Congress notes how active its members are by keeping track of the number of events each member attends. Certain events can earn members a Distinguished Member point. At the end of each semester, if you have earned 15 Distinguished Member points, you become a Distinguished Member.
Honors Congress rewards the Distinguished Members by throwing them a special Distinguished Member Event* that the members get to vote on and is completely free at the end of each semester! In the past our Distinguished Members have visited places such as CityWalk, Disney Springs, and had dinner at Taverna Opa!
* Due to COVID-19, Honors Congress will not be able to host a Distinguished Member Event this semester. The special event will be replaced.
