Cal Poly Honors Wins 1st Place at the National Collegiate Honors Council Newsletter competition....again!
Do you have priority registration for Winter 2024?
Join an Honors Committee!!
We are looking for volunteers for a number of our Honors Committees. Its a great way to be more involved in Honors. Its also a way to earn your Leadership co-curricular! Read about each committee and then use the links below to apply! Applications are DUE OCTOBER 6TH!!
Newsletter: Are you interested in writing or graphic design? The Honors Newsletter is looking for people interested in either to work on the award-winning Honors Newsletter! Newsletter editors will get to know more about the Honors Program by working in a team of 6-8 people to produce a publication about the people and latest events happening in the Honors Program. Check out the Spring 2023 newsletter!
Food Pantry Garden: The Cal Poly Food Pantry Garden is looking for Honors volunteers! Our mission is to provide Cal Poly students with fresh organic produce and opportunities to learn about food and nutrition education. We are looking for volunteers who have a passion for gardening, food, and community service. Experience with social media is welcomed but not necessary.
Events: For the Event Planning Committee, we are searching for dedicated Honors students who are committed to expanding and representing the Honors Program via socials, registration events, and other campus activities. As we are missing an Honors Commons this Fall, we need creative minds to help us protect our community and establish meaningful connections.
Marketing/Communications: The Honors Marketing/Communications Team is a great opportunity for anyone interested in developing their communication, creative, and outreach skills! If you’re into social media, video/photography, graphic design/communications, or want to learn, this could be a great role for you and an excellent opportunity to get involved in your Honors community!

Temporary Spaces for Honors....
Until we have our assigned Honors Commons here is what we have arranged so far for Fall quarter:
- Building 197 (Bonderson), Room 104 every Wednesday from 3-6pm reserved for Honors students. This will be open to any Honors student who needs space to study, work on group projects, or just hang out.
- You can still access the Honors copier in Building 116 (Jesperson), Room 212. The copier is connected to a computer for anyone who needs to print.
- Jenni's office is Building 116, Room 212 (with the copier!)
