What is the Honors Student Organization?

The Honors Student Organization (HSO) is a group of honors students who plan and participate in social, academic and service opportunities to further the mission of the Hutton Honors College. Through the organizing of social and philanthropic events benefitting all HHC students, HSO demonstrates its commitment to the entire IU-Bloomington community. Participating in HSO offers a great leadership opportunity, and many students find HSO a wonderful way to meet fellow Honors students.
