Co-Curricular activities are designed to enrich and enhance your educational experience in the Honors Program. Each semester, you may choose from a variety of pre-approved activities to satisfy your co-curricular requirement. The Rio Salado College Honors Program believes that these activities will expand your college experience and give you an opportunity to explore additional areas in your academic program.
The pre-approved co-curricular activities fall into five categories. You may choose to attend/participate in any activity that falls under one of these categories during the semester. The co-curricular activity must be outside of your required coursework (not required for credit in a class).
You will be required to verify attendance/participation for your co-curricular activity. In addition, you must write an essay about your co-curricular activity so be sure you have the following information about your chosen activity:
- Your full name, MEID, and Honors course number and title
- Title and description of the event
- Location, date, and time of the event
- A recap of the experience
- A reflection on what you learned and a description of how the event connected to your Honors class
- An analysis of the positive and/or negatives of the experience
These include the Honors Forum lectures, lectures on campus but not required in your course, or off‐campus lectures.
A minimum of four hours of volunteer time through a Rio club or activity or MCCCD service learning community partner correspond to on co-curricular activity. (You must complete a Volunteer Service Statement & Agreement form before you complete this activity. A signed form must be included with your co‐curricular submission to document your participation.)
You may attend a theater performance, museum, exhibits, art event or film screening (documentary).
You can choose to actively participate in campus clubs and organizations. Regular attendance at approved on‐campus club meetings and participation in club events is an approved activity.
This may include undergraduate research that occurs beyond a class requirement such as attending a conference or an academic activity in your major field of study (e.g., Model U.N., participating in an archaeological excavation, voter registration drive, planetarium night, or other academic opportunities).
NOTE: Detailed co-curricular submission requirements will be provided in the non-credit Honors Program course students are required to complete each semester.
