HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: End of Semester Honors Daily and Walk-in Advising:
The last day of the semester for the Honors Daily, as well as for walk-in advising, will be Wednesday, December 10. You can continue to make advising appointments through finals by calling the Honors Office.

2.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Honors Infirmary Study Room during Reading Days:
We have reserved room 302 Infirmary (the big room by the elevators) as an Honors study room, available from 9:00am-5:00pm during the two Reading Days next week (December 11 and 12). We hope you'll take advantage of having an extra space to hang out during the day as you prepare for finals!

3.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Hack Your Room 3D Printing Contest - Updated:
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 

Update: Marston Science Library tweeted last night that there is a substantial 3D printing queue there and at other locations on campus. Priority is for class assignments. They are doing their best to accommodate all printing requests with the limitations of the printers, but can't promise any completion deadlines. If you are planning to enter this contest, please plan accordingly.

4.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Phi Beta Kappa Membership:
Tapped to join Phi Beta Kappa this semester? Don't toss the invitation into the trash, thinking this is one more solicitation for your hard-earned cash. Getting selected for this honorary society is a great accomplishment and recognized by grad schools, law and med schools as meaning you are among the best students academically at your institution. 

Phi Beta Kappa is the nation's oldest, most selective, and most prestigious liberal arts honor society. Dr. Johnson is a proud member! Former Honors Director, Dr. Knudson, is the current UF chapter president.

Phi Beta Kappa will be noted on your transcript and will make a very nice line on your resume. It also has some prestigious awards for graduate study, so if you are a member, take a look at the national website to see what is available. 

Standards for election into Phi Beta Kappa are extremely high, and membership is by invitation only. Outstanding GPA is only one consideration, and distribution and diversity of coursework in the liberal arts and sciences is another. For more information, visit http://www.honors.ufl.edu/PBK/Home.aspx or http://www.pbk.org

Also note that induction into Phi Beta Kappa counts as an academic point towards Honors completion requirements.

5.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Strengths Coaching:
Wondering how to best utilize your talents and strengths? Make a Strengths Coaching appointment with Dr. Johnson! She can review your top talent themes from the StrengthsQuest assessment and help you determine ways to leverage those strengths as a student leader. 

If you have already taken the StrengthsQuest assessment, just make sure you know your top 5 themes.

If you haven't taken the StrengthsQuest assessment, visit http://bit.ly/1BdubI4 to take it for $10

Then, call the Honors Office and request a coaching appointment.  

6.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Deadline for Fall Graduates to Submit Honors Completion Requirements (HC) (TODAY):
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]  

7.	EVENT: Honors Holiday Party Registration Closes Friday (TODAY):
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.
