HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Independent Study - Honors Video Project Editor:
Are you good with a video camera? The Honors Interns are looking for a qualified individual to serve as videographer for a special recruitment project we will be working on next semester. If selected, the videographer will receive Honors Independent Study credit for their work. Please note that because of the credit you will receive for this project, you will be expected to remain committed to the project for the entire semester. The script will be provided by the Interns.

To fulfill the requirements of this position, it is necessary that the applicant have access to equipment for filming and editing. That equipment is not available through the Honors Office.

Applications should consist of a cover letter expressing interest / qualifications and a link to at least one (1) example of a video filmed and edited by the applicant. All those interested should direct applications and inquiries to Honors Intern, Ally Eboli at [log in to unmask] The application is due by November 25.

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 19; December 3 and 10.  

3.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: How and When to Drop a Course (NEW POSTING):
The deadline to drop a class is Monday, November 24 at 5:00pm. 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.ufadvising.ufl.edu/advisers.aspx  

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 or dual enrollment) 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.  

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).

4.	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.

5.	STUDY ABROAD: Summer in Lyon, France with UMKC Honors (HC):
Students in good academic standing, who have had at least one year of French, are invited to apply to UMKC's Summer Study Abroad Program in Lyon, France. During this 6-week program students earn 9 credits (all students pay in-state tuition) and gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the French language and culture. Our program differs from many other summer programs in that students live for the entire six weeks with host families, which are specially chosen for their interest in sharing French life and culture with our students. 

Along with innovative language and culture classes, students take an interdisciplinary course on the French Resistance during World War II with Dr. Gayle Levy, Honors Program Director. For more information, contact Dr. Levy ([log in to unmask]) and go to our application and information site: http://bit.ly/1sCBWhv 

6.	EVENT: Honors Holiday Party (NEW POSTING):
Registration will be available starting Monday, November 17 for the Honors Holiday Party taking place on Monday, December 8 from 6:00-8:00pm at the University of Florida President's House. Tickets are free, but you must have a ticket in order to come, along with at least 2 food items for the local Bread of the Mighty Food Bank. 

There will be a limited number of tickets available, so please do not claim a ticket unless you are 100% certain you can attend the party. Those who cancel at the last minute or do not show up to the event will be required to reimburse the Honors Office for their ticket ($20), and they will not be allowed to participate in the Spring Honors Banquet. Seriously, do not register unless you are 100% planning to come to the event.

We will maintain a short waiting list if we run out of tickets. Tickets are non-transferable.  

The registration link will be posted in Monday's Honors Daily.
