HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Returning Honors Housing Option:
Current honors students - are you interested in living in Murphree Hall next year as part of the Honors II community? If so, you can sign up in three simple steps!

Space is limited and given on a first come, first served basis.

Step 1: Submit a housing contract (http://www.housing.ufl.edu/undergrad/apply/recontracting/) by January 13.

2.	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

The idea is to have a relatively informal venue with relatively entertaining films, which nonetheless may have more political significance than the lens through which we may view them when for pure entertainment.

There is an historical trajectory suggested in this film series, as well as a common theme regarding changes in state power, and in the relationship between state/economic/social actors, over time. For more information, please contact the film series coordinator, Patricia Woods, at [log in to unmask]

Monday, January 13: Film - Hannah Arendt. Hannah Arendt reports for the New Yorker on the trial of Adolf Eichman.

This panel is organized by the graduate students of the Department of Political Science.

8.	COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT: ART 2936C Sketchbook Development (NEW POSTING, TODAY):
Interested in online sketchbook? Whether you've solidified your schedule or not, this 12 minute video link may shed more light on what you can expect: http://youtu.be/B8WBUVBoH0Y

As you will see, our course happens in moments, spread out over numerous drawing and e-Learning sessions. We do not meet in a classroom.

During this period of Drop/Add there is still time to explore the videos describing our format, how to get started, e-Learning tools and the required course pack of sketchbooks and art supplies; investigate the "field" extensions of optional smartphone or pad device use with the course blog; the syllabus expectations, sketchbook examples, course objectives and the syllabus calendar outline (syllabus attached here). All of these resources will lead us on an exploration of our campus connections and research centers-sketchbook in hand.

While you are sizing up this class - try to determine how the flexible parts of your overall schedule will permit you to engage with campus sites and expectations such as visiting museums, accessing library course reserves and seeking out Public Art all around your UF campus...where time permits. And, will you be willing to read and assimilate the schedule of activities, site locations and weekly class posts throughout the semester? Online courses require regular classmail through e-Learning and a disciplined "check in" with the online course materials and updates. 

This is a UF "campus-centric" class that requires physical AND website interaction.  This is not currently a distance education course and requires regular visits across the UF campus for Spring 2014. 

The School of Art + Art History offers this course in the spirit of delivering something unlike any other class you've taken; to make creative connections a new habit of mind in every discipline.

Register for ART 2936C, section 031E or 03BH. If you have any questions prior to the close of drop/add, feel free to contact the instructor, Patrick Grigsby, at 9352) 273-3071.

9.	RESEARCH: Health Disparities Research Opportunity (NEW POSTING):
Interested in getting involved in promoting healthy behaviors among the community? Dr. Tucker's Health Psychology Team is recruiting research assistants for the upcoming summer and fall semesters. 

The team focuses on addressing health disparities amongst low-income, racial/ethnic minority communities by emphasizing culturally sensitive health care delivery and implementing health promotion programs targeting overweight/obesity and related diseases. All research team members actively interact with community member participants and are instrumental in carrying out health-promoting interventions. Research assistants will also play important roles as members of the Health Disparities Research and Intervention Program (HDRIP) at the University of Florida College Of Medicine.

Currently, they are recruiting undergraduate research assistants, primarily for the summer and fall semesters. Preference will be given to applicants who are available for the 2014 summer semester. Please email Joane Cadet at [log in to unmask] for more information and the application. Students will have until January 27 to submit their applications.
