For Current Honors Students

BLAST Peer Mentoring Program

The Bantivoglio Leadership and Service Training (BLAST) peer mentoring program pairs upperclassmen with incoming Honors students to help guide them through their first semester in Honors and at Rowan. Incoming students are invited to join shortly before the start of their first semester in the program.

Events & Activities

Each week during the academic year Honors students receive the Honors Announcer, our weekly email message that includes upcoming events, activities, and service opportunities.  Our students are also invited to view the Honors Google calendar and can join RU Honors social media for updates.

Honors Groups

Honors offers a wide variety of groups that welcomes all Honors students. We also welcome Honors students to start new groups if they don't see something that interests them. 

Fall 2020 Honors Groups 

Honors Student Organization (HSO)

The Honors Student Organization works closely with Honors administration to help set the direction of our program.  The HSO's Executive Board meets regularly to coordinate and plan activities; runs our peer mentoring program, B.L.A.S.T. (Bantivoglio Leadership and Service Training); and assists in collecting Honors participation and service assessment data from all Honors students. The HSO President and Vice President sit on the Honors Faculty Advisory Board and attendall advisory board meetings, participate in committee and subcommittee work, representing the Honors student perspective to the advisory board, and serve as conduits for information from the leadership and advisory board to the Honors student population, when appropriate. 

Meet the 2020-21 HSO E-Board!
