Activities Honorary Society (AHS)
Since 1950, the Activities Honorary Society (AHS) has recognized undergraduate students whose leadership in a variety of student organizations has contributed to a better University of Illinois at Chicago community. The Activities Honorary Society was founded by student leaders at the University of Illinois Undergraduate Division at Navy Pier and weathered the transition to the Chicago Circle Campus. It is one of only two active traditions still remaining from the Navy Pier Campus.
In order to be eligible for inductions, undergraduate students must participate in at least three diverse student organizations and hold a key leadership role in at least one of the three. Nominees must be in good academic standing (2.5/4.0 minimum GPA), with at least 72 credit hours completed by the semester in which they are nominated. Each year, recipients are selected by AHS alumni. The member-selection format has a 65-year history and this loyal support of alumni makes AHS unique among student awards.
