HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.      ANNOUNCEMENT: Honors Backpacks Linville Gorge - 2 spots remain!:
Honors is getting out of Gainesville for the weekend of November 6-8 and heading to Linville Gorge in North Carolina! We will be hitting up Table Rock and Linville Falls while viewing the amazing fall leaves. We will spend the weekend hiking through gorgeous trails, viewing enormous boulders, swimming in a refreshing river, and experiencing the wonder of a truly breathtaking waterfall. This trip will include great company, delicious meals, wonderful hikes, and sleeping under the stars. Linville Gorge is guaranteed to leave even the most experienced backpacker inspired.

We will leave early Friday morning on November 6 and plan to make it to the trail head by early afternoon. We will hike into the woods and enjoy nature for all it has to offer and then return late Sunday night. Please note, this is a primitive trail which means no toilets, electricity, or running water.

For $105, you get the undivided attention of *2* honors advisors (Melissa and John), 2 TRiP leaders who are in the Honors Program (Jarryd Reed and Fae Nageon De Lestang), plus transportation and fees, all meals from dinner on Friday to lunch on Sunday, all group gear (food, stoves, fuel, tents, etc.). You will need to provide a sleeping bag and mat (can be rented from the Outfitter), as well as any personal items and money for fast food during the drive.

This trip is limited to 11 honors students. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis in 118 Hume. Please bring a check for $105 made out to the University of Florida in order to reserve your space. *There are 2 spots remaining!*

These choices will ultimately shape the community, state, and nation in which we live. Our members will carry on this devotion to the medical profession for the rest of their careers as physicians.
