If you have already graduated, patience! It will be early next week before
we will be able to remove you--it is just too hectic right now to be able to
help. In the meantime just hit the delete key.
If you would like to post to the List for your organization, e-mail me
several days head. Put the event name and date in the subject line. SKD

The Honors Daily Opportunities List
Thursday, August 28, 2003


2.  Seats in High Demand Courses
3.  Honors Football Bloc
4.  GatorFest (TONIGHT)
5.  Friends for Life General Meeting
6.  STUFF TO DO and GatorNights
7.  Volunteer Fair
8.  UF Counseling Center
9.  Free Honors Planners should be here by Sept. 5, perhaps sooner


1. DROP/ADD ENDS TONIGHT at one minute to midnight. Please make sure your
schedule is correct. Tomorrow you will get a W if you drop a course--you
only have two of those for your first sixty hours. Save yourself some hassle
and check your schedule on ISIS today at
2. SEATS IN HIGH DEMAND COURSES: UF has added seats in SPN 3300 and SPN
3301; also ENC 2210 (Technical Writing). These are regular sections, not
honors sections.
There are a few seats here and there in Honors courses. This week we opened
a section of Hrns In Search of  Magic Bullets (PHA 3931) MWF 6 Section:
4399. Gen Ed is B or S. Meets in HPNP G312. This course is taught by Dean
Michael McKenzie from Pharmacy. The course examines issues like drug
tragedies, drug research in children, drug research in animals, drug
research applied to various diseases. The course will include commentary on
social issues related to pharmaceutical research such as the time, expense
and testing necessary to deliver drugs to the public and the need to
properly monitor drug effects. Participants need not have a background in
the pharmaceutical sciences; they should have a strong interest in sciences.

Note the class meets in the Health Center. Students may need to keep the
period before and after free to get there.
3. HONORS FOOTBALL BLOC: For all of you who were lucky enough to get season
tickets, SHO wants to make the football season a little easier on you. We
have set up an Honors football bloc. When you scan into the Honors football
bloc, you receive a variety of benefits. For one, for each game of the
season you will be guaranteed a seat in the Honors bloc, meaning that you'll
be sitting with your Honors peers! Also, instead of having to wait in line
at the stadium to pick up your tickets, you can pick them up in the Hume
lobby during certain hours (probably 10:30M-12:30PM) on the Friday before
the game. Plus, the Honors bloc chairperson (Katie Croswell) lives in Hume,
so if you need to arrange a special pick up time it will be very convenient.
(If you ever can't pick up your tickets during lobby times, email
[log in to unmask], subject line "Honors Bloc tickets") All in all, the Honors
bloc is a quick and painless way to enjoy the football season and not wait
in long lines. The Honors bloc is open to both Honors students and friends
of Honors students, so don't hesitate to include your friends!
How to get into the Honors Bloc: Bring your Gator 1 ID to Gate 13 of the Ben
Hill Griffin Stadium between now and Friday August 22nd between the hours of
8AM-5PM. Tell the person at the window that you want to scan into the Honors
bloc, SHO bloc, or Student Honors Organization bloc. The three letter code
for our bloc is SHO. They should take care of the rest! If for some reason
you can't get to the stadium before Friday, e-mail [log in to unmask] You'll
need to give Katie Croswell, the bloc chairperson, your ID and she'll have
to scan it into the bloc on Monday. Make sure to get that ID to Katie before
Monday! Throughout the season you can add or delete people from the Honors
bloc, as long as Katie knows about it before the Monday before the game in
question. If you're interested, don't delay and get scanned into the Honors
Bloc. Hope to see you all out there! Go Gators!
