HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.      ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: S-U Option Deadline (TODAY):
The deadline to request an S-U option for classes is this Friday, September 11 at 5:00pm. Subject to college degree program and department guidelines, students may take elective course work and earn grades of S (Satisfactory) or U (Unsatisfactory). A grade of S is equal to a C or better. Grades earned under the S-U option do not carry grade point values and are not computed in the University of Florida grade point average. Such grades are included in a student's permanent academic record and are reflected on the transcript. Once the S-U option is approved, students cannot revert to a letter grade.

Students choosing the S-U option must be in good standing and cannot be on university academic probation. To elect the S-U option, students must obtain the approvals indicated on the form. They can elect the S-U option for only one course each term; this option is in addition to courses that are taught only on an S-U basis. Courses taken to fulfill general education, writing and math (Gordon Rule), major and minor requirements cannot be taken S-U. The S-U option most commonly is used for foreign language courses.

To request the S-U option, pick up the form from the Registrar's Office in Criser Hall. According to the form, you will need to get approval from your college, department, and instructor, so plan ahead if you would like to choose this option for a course.

15.     STUDENT ORGANIZATION ANNOUNCEMENT: Breaking Down Borders with Esperanto (NEW POSTING):
This past summer, two UF students traveled around Europe together for two months, staying for free in people's homes and making friends everywhere they went. They observed local ways of life, discovered long-lost relatives, and even found romance.

They did it all with Esperanto, a neutral language created for international communication. Esperanto is unique in human history because it originated from one person to become a living language, currently spoken by hundreds of thousands, if not millions, worldwide.

At The Esperanto Club's first event of the year, Jordon Kalilich and Andy Rosenbaum will introduce the language and talk about how they used it this summer to break down borders. Join us on Tuesday, September 15, from 6:30-8:00pm, in Anderson 21. Visit http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=130830096431 for more details.

Shabbat continues on Saturday morning with yoga at 11:00am and a Mincha service after the game at 5:00pm, followed by snacks, learning and a Havdalah service marking the end of Shabbat. Hillel is located at 2020 W. University Ave., across from the stadium. Contact Rabbi Yoni at [log in to unmask] with any questions.
