The Honors Council provides a platform for OTC Honors Program students to freely associate and participate in social and academic endeavors. We seek this in support of academic excellence and the pursuit of personal and professional growth. It does this by encouraging community/campus involvement, service, and leadership. The Honors Council works to create an environment for members of a collegiate honors learning community that promotes collaboration, cooperation and scholarly conscience.
The OTC Honors Council has been in existence since 2009. The organization fosters a sense of community among members of the OTC Honors Program. The organization serves to organize social, community service, campus service and academic endeavors for its members. Members of the OTC Honors Program, the parent academic program of the Honors Council, fulfill program requirements to earn honors distinction on their associates degree.
Through this process, academically motivated high achieving students who conduct themselves in a responsible and respectful manner complete honors courses as a part of their OTC degree. These students also have required campus/community service requirements and meet academic, ethical and behavioral standards.
Through the Honors Program students receive dedicated academic advising, earn honors distinction on their associates degree and transcript notation of honors coursework. They will also encounter honors scholarship opportunities, receive acknowledgement of honors program completion at commencement. Honors students may also have the opportunity to transfer honors courses to honors program/colleges at many transfer institutions.
The Honors Council facilitates a wide variety of campus and community social and educational events, campaigns and functions. The OTC Honors Program office, and Honors Council Headquarters, is located in ICE 352. We invite you to come hang out, grab a snack and learn more about the program.
