HSG

Honors Student Government

Honors Student Government is a forum to plan social, cultural, and service activities; promote unity among Honors students, and foster a community of scholars within the Honors Program. All Honors students are encouraged to attend Honors Student Government meetings. Meetings are on the first Friday of each month throughout the school year. We hope to see you at an HSG meeting or event soon! Meet the student leaders who make up the HSG executive board below!

Hello, everyone! My name is Zeeshan Muzammil and I’m from Glen Ellyn, IL. I’m starting my sophomore year with a major in Health Sciences in the hopes of one day entering medical school. Here are some tidbits about me: when I get the opportunity, I enjoy playing and watching sports with my friends, as well as trying new restaurants with family. I enjoy traveling around the world and visiting historic sites.  As co-chair of the social committee, I intend to create a variety of activities for the entire Honors Program as we return to campus. I’ll make sure the activities are tailored to our Honors students’ interests and that everything is done in a fun and professional manner. I can’t wait to see all of you!
