Honors Student Council
The Honors Student Council (HSC) facilitates student activities for the Honors community at Merrimack.
Examples of HSC events:
- Snack Attacks are a time for Honors students to take a break and mingle with other Honors students in the Honors lounge with food! Examples of past snack attacks include making caramel apples and decorating cookies.
- Movie Nights for Honors students in the Honors House.
Service opportunities are a major component of HSC events and include fundraising such as for Lazarus House and the Wounded Warrior’s Project. HCS has also organized teams for the Merrimack Thanksgiving Basket Drive, Mack Gives Back, and the Relay for Life.
Additional HSC Responsibilities:
- Members of the HSC represent Honors students on the Honors Program Committee (HPC) and advocate for student needs in other ways as well.
- HSC members are eligible to represent Merrimack Honors at the Annual National Collegiate Honors Conference (Denver, 2014; New Orleans, 2013; Boston, 2012).

Any Honors student can serve as a committee member on the HSC committees, which include: Student Activities (Social), Student Activities (Service), Fundraising, Public Relations, and Reslife. Interested students can sign up for the committees at the beginning of each school year. Students should commit to participating in the committee for a full academic year.
Midway through the Spring semester interested students can campaign to become the Chair or Co-Chair of HSC. These positions will be elected via an online poll by the entire Honors student body. Once elected, the Chair and Co-Chair will accept applications from Honors students interested in becoming committee chairs or the secretary. The Chair and Co-Chair will interview and select the committee chairs to serve on the HSC for the following school year.
