What is your favorite Honors event that you have attended? My favorite Honors event I attended was watching Les Misérables at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.

What motivates you to be so involved in Honors College events? In high school I was involved in many after school activities, so I feel strange when I’m not super involved in some sort of club or program.

Any advice on how to be more involved for people who have a hard time balancing schoolwork involvement? My advice is to go to events that interest you. Keep a close eye on emails sent to you and follow different FIU clubs and programs on Instagram and other social media. Apply to be a part of a student organization, especially the ones for your major.
