Become a fan of the UF Honors Program on Facebook: http://tinyurl.com/mbv73y . Follow UF Honors on Twitter: http://twitter.com/ufhonors

2.      ANNOUNCEMENT: Photos Needed of Your Recent Study Abroad Adventures:
Have you studied abroad in 2009? Would you like to be included in our "Postcards from Honors" album on the new UF Honors Facebook page? Please send one photo from your recent study abroad adventure to Melissa at [log in to unmask] . Please include your name and location of your pic in the e-mail, and Postcards in the subject line.

3.      ANNOUNCEMENT: National Merit/Achievement and UWC Students:
Fran Green's fall office hours for National Merit/Achievement and the United World College students are Monday-Thursday from 10:00am-12:00pm and by appointment in 118 Hume.

Fran can also be reached by e-mail: [log in to unmask]

Fran's office hours are for questions you may have about your NM/NA/UWC scholarships.

4.      ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Walk-in Advising (TODAY)
Honors advisors will not be taking any academic advising appointments during drop/add week. Instead, we will have open walk-in advising hours in 118 Hume Hall each day this week from 9:00am-12:00pm and 1:00-4:00pm. Note that not all advisors will be available during these times, so you may not be able to ask for a specific advisor.

Walk-in advising meetings typically run for 5-10 minutes and are, therefore, most useful for quick questions about registration.

Please note the following:

-Honors advisors cannot add students to any classes that are full or override drop/add appointment times.

-If you are having trouble registering for an open class because ISIS says you have not met the prereq, you'll need to contact the department that offers the course. Honors advisors cannot override prereqs, even if you actually have met the prereqs.

-If you need a lengthy review of requirements, need to rearrange your AP/IB credits, or want to discuss long-term planning or undergraduate opportunities, *please* wait until after drop/add week is over to meet with an advisor. We will begin taking advising appointments again starting August 31. Just call our office at 352-846-6083 to set up an appointment.

5.      ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Drop/Add (TODAY):
ISIS Registration, www.isis.ufl.edu , is available starting August 24. You will have a registration appointment for schedule adjustment which you can find on ISIS.

*Advisors cannot bypass your appointment time to add you to a class early.*

Your schedule must be finalized by 11:59pm on August 28. Don't forget to add a class before you drop one if possible!

For more information on registration, visit http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc/regtips.html
