Have you ever been invited to join an honor society? Invitations may seem like a surprise in your inbox, given you weren't necessarily expecting them, but then again who is? Of course, you'd like to read reviews and learn more to make sure it is worth the time, effort, and dues. Let’s take a look at what makes HonorSociety.org a unique opportunity for any student looking to go further, and why College Magazine has ranked it as one of the top 5 honor societies you should join.

HonorSociety.org is a technology-driven society that helps connect members to people and opportunities to help them succeed. The mission of HonorSociety.org is to help members maximize their academic, leadership, and networking opportunities.

The benefits for members of HonorSociety.org range from career guides to travel discounts, and health and dental plan discounts. The best part about HonorSociety.org is that it is a community which recognizes its members' merits long after graduation, as members are still eligible for benefits after they receive their diploma. Members also have the opportunity to apply for scholarships for their achievements based on their GPAs, service to the community, etc., all while motivating them to maintain their high grades for future scholarship opportunities. Members also have the option to wear HonorSociety.org regalia at graduation, recognizing their membership in the society.

HonorSociety.org also has a network of partners, which includes universities, corporations, associations, and nonprofits. The society is also very active and has large followings on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube ensuring that you can connect with the society and high achievers on your social network of choice.

Furthermore, your involvement will not only be through a computer screen— you can actually meet fellow members and alumni by attending one of the society's exclusive member trips, traveling to places such as Washington, D.C. or Los Angeles. While on their most recent trip in D.C., members enjoyed networking opportunities on Capitol Hill, a member banquet and ceremony, tours of famous memorials, historic buildings, and museums. Their next national member conference will be in October 2016 in Seattle, Washington.

Once you join HonorSociety.org, you will gain access to a personal online profile on the society's website, which will help build your personal brand on the internet. The organization also has a job search feature, which will allow you to search over 20 million jobs that range from part-time jobs to full-time positions.

The organization rewards you for dedicating time to maintaining a high GPA and achieving academic goals. If you want to be more involved, members can become featured writers and have articles published nationally. You can even get involved with the chapter at your university or start a chapter at your school by becoming a founding member. This position offers extensive leadership experience -- an essential tool for life (not to mention, it looks great on a resume). If you have been invited to join, these reasons make it clear that it's worth the time to check out HonorSociety.org.

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

Hey,

So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Sincerely,

Me

Why You Should Bring Your Close Friend As Your Formal Date

Before asking that cute girl to formal think about asking a friend

129

Every year since I was a junior in high school I have always looked forward to homecoming or prom. When I got to college I began to look forward to my fraternity formal. I was never concerned with what to wear or the expense of formal but rather who I was going to ask. It can be difficult to make a decision. If you ask anyone friends with me they will tell you how I am one of the most indecisive people out there. There are so many people I am friendly with or have a close relationship that it can feel difficult to make a decision. But let's look at that phrase again. You might think why does he want to bring someone who is his friend to his fraternity formal rather than someone he likes or is dating. To answer this question, some of the girls I have liked I have not been able to be the true me around and that also applies to the girls I have dated as well. I am different around my friends and I want someone to know the real me rather than me just having to pretend.

Maybe I am still experiencing the effects of a fun weekend but I have noticed that every formal or prom that I have brought a date with not only was a fun formal but interacted and connected well with my friends. That is the main thing I look for in a formal date, they need to be liked by my friends and many of them are still pretty friendly after the formal. You are spending the weekend with them and the drive down for you formal. There will be a lot of time spent with your date so it is important to bring someone you know you will have fun with. I am not saying that there isn't anything wrong with bringing someone else but I always found it best to bring a friend if you are not dating someone.

Think about the people you know you will always have fun with. This can be an indication of who you should bring and why but you should also think about the positives in this situation. Your fun and the time spent with the people should be prioritized before anything else. This event is about you and you should have someone with you that you know is fun to be around and someone you can enjoy yourself around along with your friends. Friends know you as well as you know yourself so there is not an idea of having to pretend to be someone else. The good thing about friends is that you do not run out of things to talk about and there is always something new to learn. Take your formal as a trip that you get to experience with the people closest to you. That is my take.

The key for me is to know that I will have fun with my date at formal. The drive to formal can be long and you are sharing a hotel room with your date along with spending time with them during the trip. I talk a lot. I want someone I know who I can carry a conversation with and will not just respond with words such as Yeah or Sounds good. I have always been able to remember not only my formals but specific parts of it as well. I think this is possible because of who I have brought and the memories I made with them.

Formals are important to everyone so think about who you want to spend that moment with. There is nothing wrong with bringing someone who you like but there also is nothing wrong with bringing a friend. Some people might bring someone they are dating but you should not have to compare yourself to other people. Do what makes you happy but remember this weekend is about you and you deserve to bring someone you will have fun with.
