HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Summer / Fall Course Registration (NEW POSTING):
Summer / Fall registration is approaching quickly. You can view the online schedule of courses at www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc . The course descriptions for honors courses should be available by March 13 at www.honors.ufl.edu  

To find your registration start time, visit ISIS, www.isis.ufl.edu , and click on "Registration Prep". This is the time you may begin registering for summer / fall courses online. Note that you do not meet with an advisor to register - everything is done on ISIS.

Honors course registration for students in their first three semesters will take place Thursday and Friday, March 19-20, from 9:00am-5:00pm. You will only be able to register for an honors course during this time, and you can register for up to one course per day. Honors course registration takes place on ISIS just as you would for your regular courses, www.isis.ufl.edu . Students who have moved beyond their third semester in Honors will be able to register for available honors courses during their regular registration time.

**All students should check ISIS to view any holds.** 

All holds must be removed prior to registering for courses. In most cases, an honors advisor *cannot* remove these holds for you. 

All engineering majors must meet with an advisor in engineering (*not honors*) to get your engineering advising hold removed. To view the list of engineering advisors by department, visit http://www.eng.ufl.edu/studentaffairs/advising/index.php  

Please plan ahead now, so there won't be any problems once registration begins.

Remember, if you want to meet with an honors advisor, please call 352-392-1519 to make an appointment, rather than e-mailing an advisor directly.

13.	EVENT: Shi'a Islam: A Contemporary Analysis (NEW POSTING):
Since the Iraq War began in 2003, the media has repeatedly discussed the Sunni and Shi'a sects of Islam. Shi'as make up the majority of Muslims in the countries of Iran, Iraq, Bahrain, Azerbaijan, and Lebanon, but compose only 10-15% of the Muslim population worldwide. As a result, the tenets of Shi'a faith are often not well understood. Moreover, the politics of the Middle East involving interactions between Sunnis and Shi'as are more complex than some government officials understand. To learn more about Shi'a Islam and its role in current affairs, join Islam On Campus and keynote speaker Noorudeen Ali for "Shi'a Islam: A Contemporary Analysis". The lecture will be followed by a Q&A.

This event is taking place on Thursday, March 5 at 7:00pm in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom. The doors will open at 6:30pm.
