Maintaining Our Legacy of Excellence
Honda Campus All-Star Challenge
The Honda Campus All-Star Challenge (HCASC) is a quiz bowl competition consisting of 64 of the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Tennessee State University students are strongly encouraged to compete and represent the university in this nationally based academically challenging adventure. A local campus-based tournament is held in the fall to identify potential members for the national team. The participating institutions share in a grant pool of $328,000 each year. Moreover, all travel, housing and meals are covered by the sponsor, American Honda Motor Co., Inc for the coach and 4 players.
Career Planning/Graduate School
University Honors Program students are urged to make avail of the numerous information sources engaging in career planning. Departmental offices are excellent locations to begin this process. Also, the Graduate and Professional Opportunities Program, the University Counseling Center and the Career Development Center play key roles in this area. Throughout the year, mailings announcing available scholarships at prestigious graduate institutions are sent via email. Foundations and service organizations offer scholarship opportunities.
National Student Exchange (NSE)
The program aims to expand the boundaries of the TSU campus spreading across the USA and into its further territories and provide an opportunity for eligible students to study at another college or university in the United States and its territories. Specifically, this provide an opportunity for eligible students to widen their educational, social, and cultural horizons and to enrich their experiences. In addition, it offers an avenue for TSU students to live in a different environment and have access to courses and programs not available on the TSU campus and enhance the academic programs and career opportunities of the students.
