The Honours College Social Association

Honours College Social Foundation (HCSF) was founded in 2011 to improve the social cohesion between the students of the Honours College from the University of Groningen. With a drink month and several other activities, Honours students have the possibility to get to know each other in an informal setting.

In 2015, Honours College Social Foundation (HCSF) has officially become an association. From then on, our association has been known as Honours College Social Association (HCSA).
