HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: TEDxUF Honors Seats (NEW POSTING):
Want a guaranteed spot to attend TEDxUF on Saturday, February 8? Be one of the first 50 to e-mail Dr. Knudson at [log in to unmask] with your name and e-mail address to claim a seat. You should also apply at TEDxUF.com if you haven't already.

2.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Spring H-Camp (TODAY):
Did you miss H-Camp at the beginning of last semester? Never fear! We're offering a special, one-day H-Camp on Sunday, January 19, for any first-year honors student who wants to participate. We're heading to Camp Montgomery just outside of Starke to participate in a high ropes course, and the only way down is to zipline. Cost is $50 which includes breakfast/lunch, all activities, t-shirt, and staffing. For more information and to register, please visit http://www.honors.ufl.edu/H-Camp.aspx . Please register by Wednesday, January 8 in order to guarantee shirt size. 

Note, students who participate in H-Camp will be eligible to apply for staff positions later this semester. H-Camp should not conflict with the HA retreat, so if you are accepted into HA, you can do both! 

3.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Photos Needed of Your Fall Academic Adventures:
Did you study abroad last semester? What about an internship or cool academic program? Would you like to be included in our "Postcards from Honors" album on the UF Honors Facebook page? Please send ONE photo from your recent academic adventures to Dr. Melissa Johnson at [log in to unmask] . Please include your name and location of your pic in the e-mail, and Postcards in the subject line.

4.	ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Drop/Add and Walk-in Advising Hours:
If you need to see an honors advisor, please call the Honors Office at (352) 392-1519 to make an appointment. Please do not e-mail advisors directly about making appointments.

Advisors will be available via walk-in advising every Tuesday - Thursday from 10:00am-12:00pm in 343 Infirmary throughout the spring semester. 

Schedule:
Tuesdays: Dr. Melissa Johnson
Wednesdays: Regan Garner
Thursdays: Dr. John Denny

Walk-in advising meetings typically run for about 5 minutes (especially during drop/add week) and are, therefore, most useful for quick questions. 

Please note the following:

-Honors advisors cannot add students to any classes that are full or override drop/add appointment times. 
 
-If you are having trouble registering for an open class because ISIS says you have not met the prereq, you'll need to contact the department that offers the course. Honors advisors cannot override prereqs, even if you actually have met the prereqs.

-If you need a lengthy review of requirements or want to discuss long-term planning or undergraduate opportunities, *please* wait until after drop/add week is over to meet with an advisor. 

Depending on your advising question, it may be more appropriate for you to see your college advisor. College advising contacts: http://www.ufadvising.ufl.edu/advisers.aspx 

Don't forget that drop/add ends at 11:59pm on January 10. For more information on registration, visit http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc/regtips.html

5.	ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: SAT II Placement for Foreign Languages:
If you need to take the SAT II for placement into a French, German, Latin, or Spanish class, please visit https://teachingcenter.ufl.edu/sat2.html for information regarding testing registration and dates. Pre-registration required.

ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES

9.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: DePauw University Undergraduate Ethics Symposium:
On April 10 - 14, The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics will host the seventh annual DePauw Undergraduate Ethics Symposium, designed to encourage undergraduate scholarship and artistic work. The conference is shaped around a series of workshops in which student scholars, creative writers, filmmakers and photographers present their best work on a subject of ethical concern. This year the theme of the Symposium is Virtue and Victory: Ethical Challenges in Competitive Life, but we welcome submissions on all issues of ethical concern. 
This is an honors symposium, and all submissions will be read by a panel of DePauw faculty members. Those students whose works are received by the February 1, deadline and accepted for inclusion in the conference will have their expenses paid for travel (up to $400), lodging and food. The group will be relatively small. We prefer to have 20 to 30 students from a variety of colleges and universities to keep the seminar groups at seven to ten students each.

The students whose works are accepted for the symposium will benefit from the discussion of their ethics-related work by leading scholars and professionals in their fields and from their peers. Our goal is that each student who participates in the Symposium will have a polished piece of work which s/he can submit in a portfolio, a graduate school application, or a job application.

If you would like further information, please visit our website (http://www.depauw.edu/academics/centers/prindle/ues/2014/) for more details about this year's symposium.
