HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: National Merit / Achievement Hours (NEW POSTING):
Fran Green will hold walk-in hours for National Merit/Achievement questions this semester, Monday - Thursday from 10:00am-2:00pm in 118 Hume.

2.	ANNOUNCEMENT: New Honors Office Location:
The Honors Program office is now open at 118 Hume Hall (across from the Hume Area desk).  The office is open from 8:30am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday. Our phone number (352-392-1519) has not changed.  

3.	ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Walk-in Hours During Drop/Add Week:
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 after next Monday. Just call our office at 352-392-1519 or stop by Hume to set up an appointment.

4.	HONORS COURSE INFORMATION: Introduction to Honors Professional Development:
There are still a few seats available in IDH 4905: Intro to Honors Professional Development, even though ISIS may say otherwise. If you are a freshman and would like to take this course, just e-mail your UFID to [log in to unmask] . In the course we cover internships, undergraduate research, and study abroad opportunities, and provide workshops on resumes, interviewing, and working with faculty. This 1-credit course meets on Wednesdays, 7th period in 119 Hume.

5.	HONORS COURSE INFORMATION: Honors Writing for Pre-Law:

9.	VOLUNTEER: The Golden Door Mentoring Program (NEW POSTING):
Citizens for Social Justice is a student-run non-profit organization. One of our programs, the Golden Door, is an innovative transitional housing and holistic educational program for homeless individuals. The Golden Door's comprehensive support system includes mental and physical health, along with a broad spectrum of mentoring and educational support services. Our program aims to place currently homeless individuals in a healthy and constructive living environment while providing them with the resources necessary to realize their own goals, and chart a path towards accomplishing them.

The Goal Discovery mentoring program may be of particular interest to Honors Students, who would be excellent candidates to share their organizational skills with our residents. We believe students in general have a good sense of realistic goal timelines and would be able to help residents develop their own ambition. Such a position may be of interest to students interested in psychology, counseling, social work, or education, as well as a variety of other subjects.

Other mentoring subject areas include Health, Exercise, Rights Literacy, Communication Skills, Financial Literacy, Arts Mentoring, and Pet Therapy. We believe the mentoring experience will be beneficial for both the student mentor and the homeless individual, and will provide excellent volunteer work experience for any students' resume. 

If interested, please view our website at citizensforsocialjustice.com . We plan to implement the program in mid-February, so please contact Megan Ahearn ([log in to unmask]) as soon as possible.
