The University Honors Program - The adventure continues


Ryan Hashem, BBA General Business, Fall 2019 

Clinical Analyst, HCA Healthtrust Purchasing Group 


Defining undergraduate moment? 

One moment that defined my undergraduate experience would be helping plan the first Super Smash Bro’s ultimate tournament. I was just eager to finally plan one because my friend is usually the one to do it in my hom​etown, I never expected it to have such a big turnout to the point where the halls were crammed with people who wanted to compete. After that It felt like more people wanted me to help them come up with events and parties.

Most memorable academic experience? 

One of my favorite experiences was convincing two of my professors to take both of our classes to St. Arnold’s Brewery. We were actually able to get a nice tour, learn about their business model and strategies, as well as meet their CEO. Most of the Honors professors I know are willing to entertain fun ideas like that.  

How did Honors help prepare you for your future? 

In Honors I learned that there’s a lot more to gain from a university than just a piece of paper. I learned different leadership skills for different sizes of various groups. I feel like Honors gave me a way to really figure out who I am, what I want to do, and how to push past my own limits. I made lifelong friendships, valuable exposure to lots of different professionals, and I got to know people from all over the world.
