HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Hack Your Room 3D Printing Contest:
The Honors Program and Marston Science Library are sponsoring a challenge for you to design and print a 3D object for your room that will make college life easier and more enjoyable. 

If you haven't attended a 3D printing workshop at Marston, you can learn more about 3D design and printing here: http://guides.uflib.ufl.edu/3dprinter . 3D printers are available in Marston and in the Health Science Center Libraries. 

You must be a current Honors student to participate. One submission per person, no team entries allowed. All submissions must be an original or repurposed modeled creation made by you. 

Your submission must include your printed object (printed at either Marston or the Health Science Center Library) and the completed application form (signed by the library employee who helped with your printing consultation). 

There are three categories for the contest:
- Usefulness: how relevant the object is to college life
- Creativity: the novelty and originality of the object
- Brand recognition: best use of the Honors theme

One winner from each category will receive an Amazon gift card. 

Deadline to submit is Monday, December 8 at 5:00pm in the Honors Office, 343 Infirmary. Winners will be announced on December 10, and all objects will be displayed at our Design Showcase on December 11 in 302 Infirmary. All participants will have the opportunity to share their design files in the UF Institutional Repository for future UF community members to utilize.

The application form is available here: http://bit.ly/hackyourroom 

2.	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.

3.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Deadline for Fall Graduates to Submit Honors Completion Requirements (HC) (NEW POSTING):
The deadline to submit Honors Program completion paperwork for fall graduates is December 5 at 4:30pm in 343 Infirmary. For more information, visit http://www.honors.ufl.edu/Completion-Requirements.aspx 

This includes students submitting paperwork for the certificate or the medallion. If you entered UF prior to Summer B 2012, you can choose either completion path. If you entered UF starting Summer B 2012 or later, you can only choose the medallion option. Questions? Please contact Dr. Johnson at [log in to unmask]  

4.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: How and When to Drop a Course:
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).

5.	EVENT: Global Health Challenges Song (TODAY):
Come to hear and sing along with IDH 3931 Music and Health honors students as they present their original songs accompanying themselves with violin, guitar, ukulele, and piano. This creative class project involves writing lyrics to prevent and improve conditions related to global health challenges. Lyrics will be presented in two languages: English and a language other than English, including Portuguese, Korean, Chinese, French, Spanish, and Greek. Some lyrics premiere new music, and some texts are set to existing music. For additional information, please contact Dr. Miriam Zach ([log in to unmask]). This event takes place on Thursday, November 20 from 11:45am-12:35pm at the UF Music Building Recital Hall, room 101. Part of UF International Education Week.

6.	EVENT: Honors Holiday Party Registration Open:
Registration is now available 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.

LiveVibe TV is a lively talk-show performance event that features people from the UF community engaged in innovative and interesting interdisciplinary work.

The guests on "Opening Minds: People Who Make Video Games" are involved in designing, coding and producing serious and educational video games.

Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Lucy Morgan will speak at the Bob Graham Center on Thursday, November 20 at 6:00pm. Morgan, an investigative reporter, won a Pulitzer in 1985 for a series of articles focused on corruption in a sheriff's office. In 1986, she moved to Tallahassee to serve as then capitol bureau chief for the St. Petersburg Times, now The Tampa Bay Times.
 
Morgan has often written about the lobbyists in Tallahassee, about their vacation homes and fancy cars, the millions they earn, but most importantly their deep insider status at the capitol.  
 
Working for years to expose social ills and corporate and political corruption, Morgan is considered a "modern-day muckraker."
 
Mike Foley, master lecturer, College of Journalism and Communications, will conduct a one-on-one interview with Morgan to discuss the importance of investigative journalism. The program will conclude with questions from the audience.

For information and an application go to http://www.bobgrahamcenter.ufl.edu/futureoffloridasummit

15.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Narratives of Capitalism: Reading and Writing the Future of the Global Economy (H-Box) (TODAY):
Christopher Michaelson (University of St. Thomas) will give this lecture on Thursday, November 20 at 5:30pm in 150 Hough Hall.

Human beings make narrative sense of life, including economic life, to understand: who works and why, what and when to produce, and how much and where to consume. The novel has become a classic, near-universal form of critical, narrative expression. Through reading and analyzing novels, we can explore how individuals and societies represent the relationship between ethical and economic values, meaning and money, and the good life and prosperity. The novel is a valuable analytical instrument at the same time that it may have intrinsic value as a work of art. However, it is also an economic product, influencing and influenced by commercial markets. The demands of work, competing forms of entertainment and enlightenment, and technological change challenge narrative forms to adapt to evolving lifestyles, preferences, and communication methods. What will be the major narratives in the future of the global economy? And what forms might those narratives take? 
 
After earning a Ph.D. in philosophical aesthetics and ethics, Christopher Michaelson defied philosophical and practical logic to launch a business advisory career in New York. A few years later, he began his academic career while leaving a foot in practice. For most of the past 12 years, he has combined full-time academic positions with part-time business practice and community service. Currently, he is an associate professor of Ethics & Business Law at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis-St. Paul, on the Business & Society faculty at New York University, and a Global Advisory Director with PwC.
