HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.      ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Spring Course Registration Approaching:
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 are now available at http://www.honors.ufl.edu/courses/coursesspring10.html

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.      ANNOUNCEMENT: Dine and Chat - Date Change (NEW POSTING):
Join Dr. Michael Olexa for dinner on Monday, November 16, at 1151 McCarty Hall A from 6:30-8:30pm. The topic is Agricultural Law and Policy; Dr. Ray Huffaker will also be there to talk about the Department of Food and Resource Economics Study Abroad in Italy Program. This is a good opportunity to explore a unique career option in law, and students interested in attending law school will find this valuable.  Plus, free pizza.

Here's a brief bio of Dr. Olexa:

Following military service, Michael Olexa  received MS and Ph.D. degrees in Plant Pathology at the University of Florida. On completion of postdoctoral work in the biological control of invasive plants, he entered and completed law school at Nova Southeastern University and was admitted to The Florida Bar. After law school, he owned and operated a plant nursery for 10 years. Later, while on assignment from the University of Florida to the USDA, he also served as a biotechnology policy advisor in the Office of the Secretary and as a National Program Leader for Agricultural Law Education. He is currently a Professor of Agricultural Law at the University of Florida and teaches in both the colleges of agriculture and law. He also serves as Director of the University of Florida's Center for Agricultural and Natural Resource Law and most recently Chaired the General Practice Solo and Small Firm Section of The Florida Bar. He is currently Chair of the Agricultural Law Committee of The Florida Bar. His honors include the USDA's Distinguished Service and Superior Service Awards and the USDA's National Teaching Award. He is also a recipient of the American Agricultural Law Association's Distinguish Service Award. In 2005 he was named a University of Florida Distinguished Teaching Scholar.

The procedure is the same as last time---if you'd like to attend, please stop by the Honors office in 118 Hume and put your name in the basket.  Please do so no later than Friday, November 13, at 3:00pm.

Current sophomores and juniors majoring in sciences, mathematics, or engineering are eligible to apply for the Goldwater Scholarship.

All applicants must have at least a 3.0 GPA and a demonstrated financial need.

Scholarship recipients live in a home-like setting with students representing a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Each scholarship house maintains an environment that is drug, alcohol, and smoke free with quiet study hours. Head residents are assigned to each house to ensure that the daily operations run smoothly. Students work in a cooperative partnership to purchase and prepare meals and assume responsibility for all household tasks.

Students do not pay rent, but are responsible for their fair share of the basic household expenses such as food and utilities. Each student contributes approximately $950 per semester (may fluctuate a bit with the economy), saving the resident over $7,000 in room/board costs per year. Once accepted, the scholarship is renewable as long as students demonstrate continued financial need, maintain the required GPA, and live cooperatively within the house.

Applications and further information are available on our website, www.southernscholarship.org . Included on the application is a detailed list of all necessary application materials. Only complete application packets will be reviewed for acceptance. There is not a deadline for application, however, early submission is encouraged as spots do tend to fill quickly.

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.
