Join the Honor Committee!

Posted by smontiel - October 28, 2014 - Uncategorized
The Honor Committee is looking for new members!  The Honor Committee would be a wonderful opportunity for you to get involved in providing service to the Mason community.  The Honor Committee is comprised of students who visit classrooms to do educational presentations, assist with exam proctoring, and agree to sit on boards to hear cases of academic dishonesty.  Undergraduate members are required to have a 2.66 GPA, graduate members are required to have a 3.00 GPA,  and be willing to volunteer to sit on a board for 2 hours each week.  Please note we do not always have cases every week, but there are some weeks that are more intense than others.

If this is an opportunity you think might want to participate in, please fill out an application at the following site:

You will also find more information about the opportunity at this website.

Are you still deciding on your academic major?

If you haven’t declared or selected your major, UNIV220: Decide/Confirm Major (2-credit elective) course will help you meet your goal.
Based on consistent feedback we’ve received from students who’ve completed the UNIV 220 course, 93% of students reported they had either significantly narrowed their choices or had made a final decision on their major.

Do not wait until the first week of class to register! Three sections are still open:
• Monday, 5 p.m. – 6:50 p.m.
• Tuesday, 5 p.m. – 6:50 p.m.
• Wednesday, 1 p.m. – 2:50 p.m. This is a hybrid section with online coursework and in-class meetings every other week
