Many of our students across campus have received the email accepting them to be a member of the HonorSociety.org. This email was not generated from anyone on the campus of Baruch College.
The HonorSociety.org website has been around for approximately 14 years. They mainly gather student email addresses through social media or job headhunting websites. The website seems to have a poor reputation, although the general consensus is that it’s not technically a scam. You pay for membership and in return you get a few small perks – discount offers on textbook rentals, recognition on printed materials, etc.
