HPEO Freshman Activities

Try out new things.

Attending and participating in campus activities is a way for you to try out new things. Ideally, you should attend events and activities which are new to you -- which you haven't experienced before.  Most of the events sponsored by the ASG and Honors can count as HPEO activities. In addition, there are numerous other concerts, plays, lectures, cultural events, and other happenings which can count.

Plan ahead.

Begin attending and participating in activities at the beginning of the semester. Watch the ASG Diget for HPEO activity opportunities. Also, keep your eye on campus bulletin boards for posters advertising upcoming events. Try to complete your Activities well before the end of the semester. Categories and Limits on HPEO Activities are listed below on this page.  Also, check out our list of suggested campus activities for HPEO credit.

Document your HPEO Activities.

Required Hours.

You are required to attend TOTAL of 20 hours of activities and events. Some events may last 45 minutes to an hour. Some may last longer. Track and document the duration of each event. You must report a MINIMUM of 20 hours of events in AT LEAST THREE of the categories listed below. There is a MAXIMUM of 8 HOURS per category. These limits are in place to discourage you from doing all 20 of your hours in similar activities. You need to DIVERSIFY!

Activity Categories and Limits.

You may NOT count any activity that you are otherwise required to attend or take part in. That is, you can't count something that you do for a course assignment, or as a required event for a club or other group that you participate in. You can't count activities that you attend that are motivated by church or religious involvement.

Here are some categories of activities and events that qualify:
