HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.      ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Spring Course Registration Approaching (NEW POSTING):
It's hard to believe, but Spring registration is approaching quickly. You can now view the online schedule of courses at www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc . The course descriptions for honors courses should be available by October 22 at www.honors.ufl.edu

To find your spring registration start time, visit ISIS, www.isis.ufl.edu , and click on "Registration Prep". This is the time you may begin registering for spring courses online. Note that you do not meet with an advisor to register - everything is done on ISIS. Registration times begin on November 2.

Honors course registration for students in their first three semesters at UF (i.e. current freshmen and sophomores) will take place Thursday and Friday, October 29 and 30, 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. Students in their first three semesters at UF can register for additional honors courses as well during their regular registration time. Note, there is no limit to the number of honors courses you can take each semester.

**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

All first-year students must remove their alcohol education holds prior to registering. For more information, visit https://interwork.sdsu.edu/echug2/?id=UFL&hfs=true

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 352-846-6083 to make an appointment, rather than e-mailing an advisor directly. You may also stop by our walk-in advising hours to answer quick advising questions from 2:00-4:00pm on Tuesdays - Thursdays.

2.      SCHOLARSHIP / AWARD: 2010 Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship Competition (NEW POSTING):
Current sophomores and juniors majoring in sciences, mathematics, or engineering are eligible to apply for the Goldwater Scholarship.  Universities may nominate up to four students each for this prestigious award; UF has had three winners each of the last 4 years.

The deadline for this is Monday, November 30. You must complete the online application, including reference letters, by that date. More details may be found by visiting the program website: http://www.act.org/goldwater/  . You may direct any questions to Dr. Knudson in the Honors office at [log in to unmask]

26.     EVENT: UF Concert Choir - Mostly Multicultural Musical Musings (NEW POSTING):
The UF College of Fine Arts School of Music presents Mostly Multicultural Musical Musings, performed by the UF Concert Choir and conducted by Will Kesling. The performance at 7:30pm on Thursday, October 22 in the University Auditorium is comprised of folk music from around the world with a mix of other interesting works by American composers.

Countries represented in the performance include Mongolia, Russia, Japan, Africa and more. Conductor Will Kesling worked hard to bring folksongs featured in the concert into useful editions for performance by American choirs.

The centerpiece of the concert, "Crying for a Dream" was originally written by René Clausen in 1994 as a commission from the American Choral Directors Association for a premiere performance at their regional convention in Rapid City, South Dakota. Because of the convention's location in Rapid City, which is in the middle of Lakota Sioux country, it was requested that the work have a Native American theme. The work is written using text and language from a variety of Native American tribes such as Lakota and Teton Sioux and leaders such as Sitting Bull and Chief Seattle.


The Concert Choir performance also features another piece, by René Clausen, "Kyrie" from Memorial, which was commissioned by the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) as a piece commemorating the tragedies of September 11 for performance at the 2003 ACDA National Convention in New York City. According to Clausen the most difficult part of writing Memorial was capturing the emotional and spiritual elements of the attack.

Tickets are $10 for the general public, $8 for UF Faculty & Staff/non-UF students, and free to UF students.

27.     EVENT: Signs of Life Hip Hop Theatre Show (NEW POSTING, TODAY):
