HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Announcement from Dr. Denny (NEW POSTING):
Dear Honors Students,
 
After nearly 13 years at the University of Florida and over 7 years with the Honors Program, I have decided to make a career change. January 30 will be my last day at UF. I feel I am a better person having had the chance to advise so many talented, creative and driven students. I routinely advise students not to be afraid to pursue a goal, no matter what it might be. I've finally decided to follow my own advice as I launch a business here in Gainesville. I wish you all the best in your academic career at UF. Go Gators!
 
Sincerely,
John

2.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Pick Up Your H-Box:
The H-Box is designed as a "scavenger hunt" style activity for Honors students - with missions delivered through a deck of cards. This is an opportunity for Honors students to gain an enriched experience of University Academics, the Gainesville Community, and the Honors Program at the University of Florida.

Students must select a minimum of 25 activities from the cards provided, at least 5 from each area (academics, community, honors). You must provide "proof of presence" in the form of receipt, photograph, or other printed record of attendance, and attach it to the card. You can view the various activities here: http://www.pinterest.com/ufhonors/h-box/ 

Students who complete their H-Box will receive a gold star pin, as well as 1 enrichment point towards Honors completion requirements. And of course, you get to keep your H-Box as a personal memory of your experience at UF. There is no deadline to complete your activities.

H-Boxes are now available for pick-up in 343 Infirmary. One per honors student, please. 

3.	ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Deadline to Apply to Graduate in Spring:
If you are planning to graduate this semester, the deadline to apply is January 31. Complete your application on ISIS by selecting My Record -> Degree Application. 

4.	STUDY ABROAD: Honors in Belgium through Clemson:
Honors Study Abroad in Belgium is taking place from May 8-June 8 via Clemson University.

Get credit for HON H2020 European Integration and HON H2090 History/Culture of Belgium. Activities include day trips, a bike ride through WWI battlefields, meeting with officials of the European Commission, a tour of the 15th century castle of Gaasbeek, and a rail-bike trip to Maredsous Abbey. 

The cost is approximately $4800 and includes tuition through Clemson, lodging, program-related tours and activities, metro and train passes, and course materials. Deadline to apply is February 15. Application is available at http://tinyurl.com/HonorsBrussels. For more information, contact Dr. Steve Wainscott, [log in to unmask]

Credit for the HON H2020/H2090 courses may also count for academic points towards UF Honors completion requirements. Contact Dr. Johnson ([log in to unmask]) to verify if you participate in this program.

5.	STUDY ABROAD: Honors in Peru through UNC-Wilmington:
Honors in Peru: The Inca Trail and Narratives of Transculturation is taking place May 19-June 17.
 
Honors Summer Study 2014 features a 20-day exploration of Peru, including Lima and the ancient Inca capital of Cusco, culminating with a four-day trek along the ancient Inca Trail to the ultimate destination:  Machu Picchu.  Although most of the trip involves public transportation and hotels, we believe travel by foot is an essential component of any appreciation of the geography, culture, and architecture of the Andes. Students and faculty members will share this opportunity to move at a pace consistent with travel in earlier centuries, while exploring such topics as the pre-Colombian civilizations of South America, how the Spanish brought about the downfall of the Inca empire, scientific expeditions of discovery, and the literature of exploration from the 16th-century to the present. 
 
Students will enroll in and receive credit through UNCW for HON 210 Honors Topical Interdisciplinary Seminar (3 credits) and SPN 294 Spanish Study Abroad (3 credits).
 
Cost for this trip is $3100 + airfare and tuition 
 
We have only 3 Inca Trail passes allotted to us that haven't been reserved  (as of January 21) and we need to commit them by January 27. 
 
If interested, please contact Dr. Bill Atwill, [log in to unmask] 

Credit for the HON 210 course may also count for academic points towards UF Honors completion requirements. Contact Dr. Johnson ([log in to unmask]) to verify if you participate in this program.
