HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Summer / Fall Course Registration (TODAY):
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 are available online 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.

2.	ANNOUNCEMENT: SERU Survey:
Dear Honors Students:  The 2009 University of Florida Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) survey gives you an opportunity to provide us with feedback about your undergraduate experience. We want to know what's important to you, what's working well, and what's not working so well. When the survey is over, we will share the results with you. The survey is available through ISIS. You may login to the survey using your student ID.

UF's interest in hearing from you is very sincere. With that in mind, we want to strongly encourage you to fill the survey out if you wish to become eligible to participate in the student season football ticket lottery. If you are an undergraduate student who is 18 years old or older, complete the survey on or before the last day of football lottery registration. For more information on SERU and the football lottery, visit the UF SERU Web site at http://www.aa.ufl.edu/SERU/index.html  

There are a number of other great reasons to participate in the SERU survey.  Every student completing the survey will be eligible for $3,000 in rewards, including $50 coupons from the UF Bookstore; various items from the bookstore; meal gift cards from Gator dining, and sessions with a personal trainer at the Student Recreation & Fitness Center.   Students who finish the survey will also get a buy-one, get-one-free offer of admission to the fabulous Florida Museum of Natural History Butterfly Rainforest.  Participation in the survey is voluntary and will not affect your grades, registration or enrollment in any way. The survey takes only 25 minutes to complete.   Thank you for your input!

11.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Training course in Greenhouse Gas Accounting and Management:
Barack Obama is calling for millions of new "green" jobs, and a cap-and-trade plan to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. More than 98% of climate change leaders believe that measuring and accounting of emissions is critical to managing climate change.  
The problem? No university in the country teaches these skills, causing a shortage that will severely limit our ability to solve global climate change.

The solution? Campus Climate Solutions, a Gainesville-based company, is proud to announce Gainesville's first course in GHG Accounting and Management! Registration is now open, and classes begin March 31. Also, any student who completes our class is guaranteed an internship with one of our partner organizations! 

For more information, including our brochure, a detailed course description, and registration information, visit: http://campusclimatesolutions.org/signup.htm. For questions on Campus Climate Solutions and our services, please contact Alison Erlenbach at (321)298-0059, or via e-mail at [log in to unmask]

Sponsors: The Center for European Studies (www.ces.ufl.edu) and The Department of Sociology and Criminology & Law

13.	EVENT: Off Campus Life Lunch Series - Career Services:
Searching for that first job after college can be a challenging experience for many students.

14.	EVENT: 12 Hours of Improv (TODAY):
Come watch Theatre Strike Force perform 12 Hours of Improv this Friday from noon to midnight in the Orange & Brew. These crazy characters will create a "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" show for more than 700 minutes to raise money for Relay for Life. Come watch at any time!

15.	EVENT: Free Performance of Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew" (TODAY):
Shakespeare in the Park, a UF student organization, is putting on its third annual production, "The Taming of the Shrew!" On Friday and Saturday, March 20 and 21 at 7:00pm and Sunday, March 22 at 4:00pm, we will be putting on free open air performances in the Plaza of the Americas in front of Library West. Come out and watch one of Shakespeare's most controversial works!

Our production updates "The Taming of the Shrew" to the 1950s, a time which communicates the repressive sexuality that the play deals with. Beautiful Bianca must wait until her fiery sister Kate is hitched before getting married herself, so Bianca's suitors set stubborn Kate up with the equally stubborn Petruchio, who is set on breaking Kate to his will. Dealing with themes of misogyny and mistaken identities, "The Taming of the Shrew" continues to entertain, shock, and question social niches even in modern times.
