FSU undergraduate research

Does anyone know if the undergraduate research opportunity program "UROP" at FSU will be too much work via commitment while being in the honors program ? I don't plan on rushing and I take my education very seriously....

    It shouldn't be a problem. The Honors program doesn't, by itself, add to your work load. But they do want you to engage in activities, volunteering, clubs, etc. UROP sounds like a good fit that should work well with the honors program. :)
    Students may earn up to a maximum of five (5) honors points toward the Honors Medallion by the achievements listed below. The amount of points for each achievement is indicated.

    Three of the 18 honor points for the Honors Medallion may be earned by the following achievements:

    Completing a Garnet and Gold Scholar Society program that includes Research as one of its components
