Scholars United

A continuing goal of scholar programs is to create a cohesive community profile. As members of Scholars United, all Top Scholars are granted the freedom to participate in directing their own enrichment activities.

Scholars United events are entirely planned and led by our Top Scholars, in an effort to organize social, service, and professional development opportunities. Traditional events include a fall trip to a local corn maze, a Houston Texans viewing party, various service events and an annual formal. The group also organizes the Last Lecture Series
