HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Spring Honors Banquet (NEW POSTING):
Watch your inbox later today for more information about the Spring Honors Banquet, "A Night at the Museum" on Tuesday, April 8. We'll have all the details about ticket sales, Honors Professor of the Year, keynote speaker auditions, entertainment auditions, and more!

2.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Follow Honors on Social Media (NEW POSTING):
We have expanded our social media presence! In addition to Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ufhonors), Twitter (https://twitter.com/ufhonors) and Pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/ufhonors/), you can now follow us on LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com/company/university-of-florida-honors-program) and Instagram (http://instagram.com/ufhonors). We'll be posting more on those spaces soon!

3.	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.

4.	ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: No-Show Policy (NEW POSTING):
As you may know, the Honors Office is currently understaffed while we complete our search for a new honors advisor. Advising appointments will be limited during advanced registration since there are only two advisors available - both of whom are covering additional responsibilities. As such, we have had to develop a new policy for students who don't show up for their advising appointments. 

If you make an advising appointment and do not show up, you will not be allowed to make another appointment with an honors advisor until after April 10. 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.	ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Taking Courses Elsewhere this Summer:
Are you thinking about taking a course elsewhere this summer? You must get the approval of your college advising office (honors advisors cannot do this) prior to doing so. For more information, see http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/currents/transients.html 

Certain colleges may have additional requirements or guidelines for taking courses elsewhere. For example, see the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences http://www.advising.ufl.edu/information/trans.html and the College of Business http://warrington.ufl.edu/undergraduate/advising/transient.asp. Please meet with your college directly if you have questions.

Also note that if you are planning to take a course elsewhere this summer in hopes of fulfilling the 9 hour summer requirement, courses must be taken at one of the State University System institutions. Community colleges (including those converted to state colleges) and private colleges do not count. For more information see https://catalog.ufl.edu/ugrad/current/regulations/info/graduation.aspx#summer  

6.	ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Save the Date - Early Honors Registration:
Early registration for current first-year students in the Honors Program will take place from 9:00am-5:00pm on March 20 and 21 via ISIS. Early registration this semester is only open to honors students who entered UF in Summer B or Fall 2013. 

You will be able to register for up to 10 credits of any classes, not just honors courses. Note, if you are registering for both summer and fall courses, you will get up to 10 credits for each term. As always, the early registration time will NOT appear on ISIS - you are responsible for remembering it is taking place.

You will not be able to register early if:
- You entered UF prior to Summer / Fall 2013
- Your GPA is below a 3.0
- You have a HOLD on your record
- You do not have the prerequisites for the course you are trying to add
- The course you are trying to add is full or departmentally controlled

The Summer / Fall schedule of courses is available http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc/. Most honors course descriptions are available at http://www.honors.ufl.edu/courses/CoursesFall2014.aspx

7.	JOB OPPORTUNITY: Honors Office Student Assistants Starting This Summer (NEW POSTING):

We're looking for responsible, professional honors students who work well with others and enjoy plenty of interaction with students and their parents. Customer service experience is a plus!
