2.      ANNOUNCEMENT: Dine and Chat with Dr. Michael Olexa - Agricultural Law and Policy (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.

3.      ANNOUNCEMENT: Spring Project Opportunity on Honor Societies (NEW POSTING):
We are looking for an honors student who might be interested in participating in an independent study for spring related to honor societies at the University of Florida. As part of this project, the student selected would compile an in-depth resource of all honor and professional societies at UF, develop website content / information on honor societies for dissemination across campus, and organize an honor society informational event.

If you are interested in taking on this project, please e-mail a resume and letter of interest to Melissa Johnson at [log in to unmask] by Monday, November 30. If selected, you will receive 1 credit of Honors Independent Study for spring.

4.      ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Graduating with Honors:
Did you know that Graduating with Honors is a process completely separate from being in or completing the Honors Program? Graduating with honors is done through your major department and involves a GPA requirement, as well as a senior thesis / project for high or highest honors. Graduating with high or highest honors is not something you can do at the last minute. It takes careful planning with a faculty member in your department well in advance of graduation. For more information about the requirements to graduate with honors in your major, visit http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/currents/gradhonors.html and follow the link to your school or college. You may also check your department's website or speak to your department's undergraduate coordinator for further information.

5.      ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Drop Deadline / Advice about Dropping:
The deadline to drop a class is Monday, November 23 at 5:00pm. Unlike in years past, you do not necessarily need a form to drop a class. Rather, you must go to your college's advising office to drop the class. Honors advisors cannot drop you from classes. For your college advising office location, visit http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc/advisers.html

You have a limited number of drops at UF. Generally, you have two drops for your first sixty hours attempted at UF (not including incoming credit brought in through AP/IB) and two drops in upper-division. Hence it is not a good idea to use a drop lightly, as you may need it another semester in a true emergency.

Many people, including medical schools, recommend *not* dropping a course if you are earning a "C" or higher. A transcript littered with W's does not impress grad schools, med schools or prestigious scholarships competitions. On the other hand, those programs are not impressed with a D+ in a course you were too afraid to drop.

If you drop a tracking course for your major, the drop may set you behind for that major. Dropping a tracking course may also be an indicator that you are in the wrong major.

A full-time course load is 12 hours, and students need to be at least full-time for some scholarships and financial aid. If you are not sure about course load requirements for your situation, please check with the Student Financial Aid Office re general scholarships/Bright Futures or Fran Green ([log in to unmask]) re National Merit/Achievement Scholarships.

Students who are on Bright Futures must repay the cost of any courses dropped. For more information about Bright Futures repayment, contact Student Financial Affairs and not the Honors Program, as honors advisors are not financial aid advisors.

All the above being said, sometimes there is no other option and one needs to drop a course.  You should drop a course if you are clearly failing it (note, a "B" in a course does not equal failure).

6.      ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Completing the Honors Program:
We have heard from many students who are confused about the timeline to complete the Honors Program. There is no deadline to take your four honors courses, i.e. you do *not* have to take four courses within your first four semesters at UF. You have priority to register for honors courses during that time, but you do not have to take all of them during that time. You may continue to work toward the Honors Certificate of Completion as long as you are an undergraduate. Please note that IDH 3931: Science for Life does not count as one of the four honors courses.

Additionally, honors internship and research credit may be used to count toward your four honors courses. For more information on how to register for internship or research credit, visit http://www.honors.ufl.edu/forms.html

When you have completed your four honors courses and the outside activity requirement (research, internship, study abroad, leadership, or service), you may submit the Certificate of Completion application to 118 Hume: http://www.honors.ufl.edu/forms/completion.pdf

7.      STUDY ABROAD: UF Honors in Paris -Spring 2010 (NEW POSTING):
Honors in Paris is a semester-long, multifaceted research seminar that unites internationally renowned UF scholars from different fields of study. Faculty members address the theme through their own disciplinary perspective, taking advantage of the particularly rich resources at their disposal in Paris and surrounding regions. In addition to intensive studies of French Culture and Language, Photography, History and more taught by distinguished UF faculty members, students will participate in activities including a week-long trip (location TBA), lectures by esteemed guest speakers, group dinners, concerts, and excursions to other areas of France.

This program is open to students from all majors, and the courses are conducted in English; you do not have to speak French to attend. Priority will be given to students in the Honors Program, but all students with a 3.0 GPA or above are encouraged to apply.

This is a UF sponsored UFIC program so the credits you earn will satisfy major, minor and university requirements while living and studying in Paris with top UF professors. Bright Futures scholarships do apply to this program and can be applied to the program fee at the current UF rate.

For more information, visit http://www.clas.ufl.edu/PRC/honors_in_paris.shtml or www.abroad.ufic.ufl.edu

8.      LEADERSHIP: Apply to be a Conference Assistant for FCHC (NEW POSTING):
As you may have noticed, the University of Florida will be hosting the Florida Collegiate Honors Council state conference February 19-21. Melissa Johnson is looking for two students to serve as conference assistants to help with the logistics of planning and running a conference for 200+ honors student leaders and administrators / faculty from across the state.

22.     STUDENT ORGANIZATION ANNOUNCEMENT: Pi Mu Epsilon Meeting (TODAY):
PME will host a meeting on Tuesday, November 10 at 5:15pm in LIT 339 (Atrium). There will be free pizza and drinks. Dr. Michael Jury has prepared the following interesting talk:

Title:  Calendar reform NOW!  Or, how to design a more accurate calendar using continued fractions.

Abstract: Our calendar must contain an integer number of days in each year, but the actual length of the solar year is roughly Y=365.242198...  days.  In order to maintain accuracy over time, the number of days in the calendar year must therefore be non-constant, and the average length of the calendar year should approximate Y as closely as possible. This is known as the "intercalation problem."  I will introduce continued fractions, explain why they are the "best" way to approximate real numbers with rational numbers, and show how they can be applied to the intercalation problem.

23.     STUDENT ORGANIZATION ANNOUNCEMENT: Gators for a Sustainable Campus (TODAY):
Come out on Tuesday, November 10 to Rinker 110 at 6:30pm and learn about the ins and outs of sustainable gardening!
