National Honor Society
Rockhurst’s Gerard Manley Hopkins, SJ, chapter of the National Honor Society is composed of students who have earned the cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above and have completed the NHS admissions process, including an essay, faculty recommendations, and thirty service hours. NHS serves as official hosts and helpers at many Rockhurst events. NHS sponsors the Battle of the Bands, a fundraising effort in support of the Jesuit missions in Central America. NHS also sponsors the in-house Rockhurst tutorial program. Students experiencing academic difficulty may receive tutoring from NHS members. Students become NHS eligible at the end of their sophomore year and inducted members at the end of their junior year.
