HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.      ANNOUNCEMENT: SERU Survey (NEW POSTING):
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!

2.      ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Completing the Honors Program:
We have heard from many students who are confused about the timeline to complete the Honors Program. There is no deadline to take your four honors courses, i.e. you do *not* have to take four courses within your first four semesters at UF. You have priority to register for honors courses during that time, but you do not have to take all of them during that time. You may continue to work toward the Honors Certificate of Completion as long as you are an undergraduate. Please note that IDH 3931: Science for Life does not count as one of the four honors courses.

Additionally, honors internship and research credit may be used to count toward your four honors courses. For more information on how to register for internship or research credit, visit http://www.honors.ufl.edu/forms.html

When you have completed your four honors courses and the outside activity requirement (research, internship, study abroad, leadership, or service), you may submit the Certificate of Completion application to 118 Hume: http://www.honors.ufl.edu/forms/completion.pdf
