HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Honors Completion Portfolios Deadline for Seniors (NEW POSTING):
Students who are graduating this semester and plan to submit their portfolio to earn the Honors medallion must do so by Friday, April 18 at 5:00pm in 343 Infirmary. Portfolios include the cover sheet found online, an unofficial transcript, and all documentation needed to show how you have earned your 8 academic points and 6 enrichment points. For more information, visit http://www.honors.ufl.edu/Completion-Requirements.aspx . Questions? Contact Dr. Johnson at [log in to unmask], but please review the website first.  

2.	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. Knudson and Dr. Johnson are both proud members! Dr. K is also the UF chapter vice 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. Also see below for an internship opportunity to write for their website next fall.

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 now counts as an academic point towards the new Honors completion requirements.

3.	EVENT: Fulbright Day:
The International Center and the UF Honors Program will be hosting Fulbright Day on Wednesday, April 16 from 9:00am-4:00pm at Smathers Library, Room 100 (formerly 1A).  

The Fulbright Program provides funding for students, scholars and faculty to undertake graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools.

Come and learn about the application process, and to listen to the experiences of current and past Fulbright scholars and students. 

The workshop for students will take place at 3:00pm.

HONORS ORGANIZATION ANNOUNCEMENTS

4.	EVENT: Student Honors Organization General Body Meeting:
The Student Honors Organization will be holding its last general body meeting this Sunday, April 13 at 8:00pm in the Hume Classroom. Come hear about the remaining events that we will be conducting this year. Additionally, we'll be having a discussion as to what you, the general body, would like to see differently in the organization next year.

5.	EVENT: SHO Annual Spring BBQ (TODAY):
Come out to the Hume Commons this Friday evening at 5:00pm to enjoy some free food and fun as the Student Honors Organization hosts its annual Spring BBQ! Sonny's is catering, and there will be plenty for all SHO members. The executive board will be providing music, a dunk tank, cornhole, design-a-cookie desserts, and a huge inflatable water slide! And to top it all off, this BBQ will also serve as the closing ceremony for Floor Wars, with the winning Hume Hall floor being presented with their award by the current SHO Officers.

ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES

7.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Department of Political Science Film Series: Reds:
The Department of Political Science is hosting a film series for faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. All films will be shown in 034 Anderson from 6:00-9:00pm. 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, April 14: Film - Reds. Two American writers, married to one another, become embroiled in the Bolshevik Revolution. Dean Paul D'Anieri, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, will give introductory remarks before our viewing of the film.

8.	JOB OPPORTUNITY: Federal Work Study Positions with America Reads:
America Reads at UF is a collaborative project designed to provide literacy tutoring to at-risk students in the Gainesville community. Tutoring takes place at a variety of locations, including local schools and community centers. Paid Positions are available for students enrolled at the University of Florida who are eligible to receive Federal Work Study as a form of financial aid. Visit http://education.ufl.edu/america-reads/ for more information about America Reads. Contact America Reads at [log in to unmask] for application details.

9.	INTERNSHIP: UF Oral History Internship Program:
Applications are available for the 2014 fall semester UF Oral History internship program. This is a 3-credit course unlike anything you have ever experienced at the University of Florida. The emphasis is learning how to gather, preserve, and promote living history, exciting stories, as well as to gain advanced knowledge in digital video and audio editing techniques. For a description of the internship program as well as an internship application, please see:
