HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Text Message Reminders from Honors:
You can now sign up to receive periodic text message notifications from the Honors Program. Please note this is completely optional, and we are not going to spam your phone. This service is free, but your standard text messaging rates apply. To opt in to this service, you can do one of two things:

Send a text to (352) 400-4460 with the message @UFHONORS

Or enter your number at https://www.remind.com/join/ufhonors

Either way, we will not be able to see your phone number, but we will be able to send you texts until you opt out.

2.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Brown Bag Lunch with the Director:
Bring a sandwich and chat with the director, Dr. Law, over lunch. Limited to ten students in November and December. Sign up in the Honors office, 343 Infirmary.  Discussion can be about the state of the Honors Program, course offerings, opportunities, anything you like and want to discuss!  

Lunch takes place 6th period (12:50-1:40pm) on Wednesdays in 302: November 12 and 19; December 3 and 10.  

3.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Honors No-Show Policy:
We are now in the midst of registration mania, and advising appointments are in great demand. If you make an Honors advising appointment and do not show up, you will not be allowed to make another appointment with an honors advisor until after November 17. You may still come during walk-in hours for quick questions only. 

We have very limited availability right now. Not only is it disrespectful to advisors to not show up for time we have set aside for you, but it is also disrespectful to your peers who are trying to get in to see an advisor and could have used your appointment time. 

If you have made an advising appointment and find that you cannot keep it, please cancel at least 24 hours in advance so another student can take your appointment. You should cancel by calling (352) 392-1519. Remember, we do not make same-day appointments.

4.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Check ISIS / Spring Registration Prep (TODAY):
Spring registration will be here sooner than you think, so now is a great time for first year students in particular to check ISIS for holds and other information. Most of these holds cannot be removed by an honors advisor, so you don't want to wait until the last minute to take care of them. Early registration for first and second year honors students takes place October 30 and 31 - this date will sneak up on you! Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/310095185856869/ 

Spring schedule of courses: http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc/201501/all/

Spring honors course descriptions: http://www.honors.ufl.edu/courses/CoursesSpring2015.aspx

First-year students should have an alcohol education hold on their record - this hold will not be removed until you have completed the online alcohol education seminar. For more information about this hold, visit https://www.dso.ufl.edu/nsfp/first-year-experience/alcohol-education/ 

Engineering majors now have an advising hold - you must meet with an **engineering** advisor (**not honors**) to get your engineering advising hold removed. To view the list of engineering advisors by department, visit http://www.eng.ufl.edu/students/advising/who-is-my-advisor/ 

Other majors may also require you to meet with an advisor *in your department* so keep checking for these types of holds, as you can't wait until the last minute to meet with an advisor.

Also check for other holds, including financial holds, admissions credentials holds (usually a missing HS transcript or dual enrollment transcript), and emergency contact or local address holds. Staying on top of holds will make the registration process much smoother. Note, you will not be able to register for classes until your holds are removed. No advisor is able to override that for you, not even for early registration. You are responsible for taking care of your holds in a timely manner.

While you are on ISIS, verify that UF has received your AP/IB/AICE scores - go to My Record -> Test Scores. If you do not see your scores listed, you will need to submit those scores to UF as soon as possible. Without those scores, you may have difficulty registering for courses that need those credits as prerequisites, or you may be considered off-track if you are counting those credits as tracking courses. Your spring registration start time may be impacted by the number of credit hours you have as well. If you have missing scores, you may contact College Board / IB / AICE to have them resend your scores. Alternatively, you may be able to talk to Admissions about how to verify your scores from your original reports. Please contact them directly for further clarification.

5.	HONORS COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT: Scholarship Prep Course Application Available:
Applications are now being accepted for IDH4715: Professional Development Strategies. This one credit class will meet Thursdays, 8th period and is reserved for first and second year students interested in applying for the UF nomination for prestigious scholarships such as the Truman, Goldwater, Udall, Fulbright, and more. For more information on these highly competitive awards, please visit the Honors website: http://www.honors.ufl.edu/Prestigious-External-Scholarships.aspx

IDH4715 will focus on how to write personal statements/essays and otherwise prepare applications, as well as how to prepare in other ways for the competition: researching and planning, organizing a timeline, preparing for interviews, acquiring good letters of recommendation, etc. Both oral and written communication skills will be addressed in the class, which will be graded S-U (pass/fail).

Email a complete application form to Regan Garner at [log in to unmask] by November 24. The application can be found at this link: http://www.honors.ufl.edu/Forms.aspx

Students selected for the course will be notified and registered for the course no later than December 12 (possibly much sooner based on when the application is received).




ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES

6.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Materials Science and Engineering PhD at FSU:

This event starts at 1:00pm on Saturday, November 1, in the University Auditorium. For more information, see our event on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/743668525688690/

9.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Mock Law School Admissions Panel:
On Tuesday, November 4 from 5:15-6:45pm in 200 Farrior Hall, join us for a mock law school admission committee meeting where you will learn first-hand about the many factors that are considered in the law school application process. You will review files of actual law school applicants, considering all aspects of the file (LSAT, GPA, letters of recommendation, personal statements, and other support documents included in a real admissions file). The discussion will be led, as it would be in an actual admission committee meeting, by two seasoned admission professionals, Associate Dean Michelle Rahman from the University of Richmond School of Law and Associate Dean John Benfield from the Charleston School of Law. The program is engaging and insightful.
