Honors Academy Student Organization (HASO)

The Honors Academy Student Organization (HASO) brings together students with common interests and ideas to become involved in the Radford University community and beyond. This organization gives students the opportunity to obtain a well-rounded experience alongside their coursework in the Honors Academy. HASO adds character and a sense of belonging to the students and to the University.

The mission of HASO includes both service and social goals. First, its members want to show the same dedication to the community that they have for their education. HASO currently partners with the Radford Community Adolescent Mentoring Program (CAMP). Second, members want to have engaging social opportunities with other students outside the classroom. HASO students work hard, but play hard too.

HASO is student-run. Co-presidents are designated during the spring semester and often act as student liasons between the Honors Academy the outside community. Other HASO leadership positions are elected or assigned during the beginning of the fall semester. The faculty mentor for HASO is the honors associate director (Dr. Jason Davis).
