What is the Campuswide Honors Student Council?

The Campuswide Honors Student Council (CHSC) is a registered student organization affiliated with Campuswide Honors that serves as the directing student leadership for the honors community. In addition to the elected/appointed council members, all honors students are automatically part of CHSC.

CHSC is dedicated to promoting academic excellence, developing strong student faculty relations, and coordinating social events and community outreach. Weekly coffee hours, dances, student mixers, the Battle of the Brains trivia bowl, and the annual banquet/senior celebration are just a few of the events traditionally held by CHSC.

Why should I get involved?

CHSC provides the opportunity for you to enrich your college experience by connecting and collaborating alongside other students in the honors community. As a volunteer or appointed council member, you have the ability to practice communicating, problem solving, event planning, and decision making, among other leadership skills.

CHSC welcomes your input, ideas, feedback or concerns. Be a part of making a difference by supporting the needs and interests of your Campuswide Honors peers!

Hi, my name is Aya (she/her) and I am serving as one of the Collaboration Chairs on the Campuswide Honors Collegium Student Council this year.

Academics aside, I enjoy working with incoming Honors students as a peer mentor to assist them in their transition to college life while also getting to know the amazing people that form our community! I’m so excited to be able to put on events for our Honors community and to help foster the formation of relationships between students and guest speakers organically.

Hi everyone, my name is Kelly (she/her), but I also go by Kiwi so feel free to call me by either name! I am a second-year Chemistry major and one of the CHSC Secretaries this year. When I’m not in class or at a CHSC event, you might catch me running around in the lab (metaphorically, of course – running in the lab is a safety hazard!) at NS2 or Rowland Hall, since I’m an undergraduate research lab assistant and an LA for various gen chem labs. My hobbies include writing poetry, listening to music, playing guitar and ukulele, and just enjoying the nice SoCal weather outside in Aldrich Park. I joined CHSC last year to meet new people and get involved in the CHCommunity, and all of the amazing council members welcomed me with open arms. This year, I hope to do the same, providing a safe and comfortable environment for all incoming and returning students. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or just want to talk! I’m always down to make another friend 🙂

Hello all! My name is Elina (she/her/ella) and I am one of the Campuswide Honors Student Council (CHSC) Community Service Chairs!

Outside of the CHC, I am a DJ for KUCI 88.9 FM in Irvine (the radio station that broadcasts from our campus) and a member of Model UN. Planning engaging events where our honors community can give back to the greater UCI community and beyond is important to me so that we can be of help while allowing honors students chances to build friendships with each other. CHSC events helped me make friends when I started school at UCI my first year knowing next to no one, so I want to give other CHC students the same sorts of chances to make friends. I can’t wait for all of the CHSC events that we will host this year, and I hope to see you there!

I also am an active member in UCI’s Tennis Club which provides a great social atmosphere as well as an outlet to exercise and take my mind off of classes.

Hi, my name is Neel (he/him) and I am an incoming third year student planning to study Human Biology and possibly minoring in psychology. During my second year, I served as the student representative for the historian committee on CHSC and it was absolutely one of the highlights of my in-person college experience. Outside of the CHSC, I’m a member of the tennis club at UCI, as well as serving on the board of MEDLIFE. I was initially apprehensive of joining the CHC when I was offered to apply, however, deciding to join has been an extremely worthwhile experience as it has created incredible friendships among my peers as well as great opportunities to get involved in ways I never would have expected. Just this past quarter, I decided I would submit my photography to NAR’s spring competition. I don’t consider myself an artistic person at all but the event was incredibly welcoming and fun to be a part of. As a leader of CHSC, I hope to bring these amazing experiences to more students on UCI’s campus by expanding the CHC and CHSC family!

Other Campus Involvements: I am involved on UCI Campus as a social chair for PACA (PharmSci Alternative Careers Association).

Hi, I’m Sarah (She/Her)! I am a second year majoring in Pharmaceutical Sciences. As of writing this, I am currently a CHSC social representative and a social chair for PACA (PharmSci Alternative Careers Association). When I was a first-year student at UCI, I honestly was super nervous that I would not be able to make friends due to the remote nature of the school year. Then when my second year rolled around, I attended the in-person events hosted by the CHSC social committee and met a multitude of diverse and enjoyable CHC students. I met friends through CHSC events (specifically coffee hours), and I deeply appreciate CHSC for putting on many engaging and informative activities. As a result, I want to give back to the CHC community by joining CHSC as a social chair to host future social events!

More importantly, without the CHC, I would not have the friends I have today! I’m grateful to honors for providing me with a supportive community that I can both rely on and be involved in. Outside of school, I enjoy making baked goods in my kitchen, taking care of my house plants, and finding new places to eat.
