Healthy Student Organization Program

Are you a part of a student organization or group? The Healthy Student Organization Program (HSOP) is here to support you and your fellow members in laying the foundation for retaining happy, thriving and engaged individuals. HSOP recognizes your organization for implementing health-promoting activities that address social, intellectual, emotional, professional and physical well-being.
