HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Sweet Dreams Ice Cream (TODAY):
The Sweet Dreams ice cream truck will be serving free scoops to Honors Gators on Wednesday, April 23 starting at 4:00pm behind Hume East!

2.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Support the Honors Program through the Senior Legacy Campaign:
The Senior Legacy is a campaign created by the Florida Fund as an opportunity to say "Thanks!" to an institution that has made a lasting impact on your life in an equally lasting and meaningful way. Since 1995, graduating seniors have given thousands of dollars in support of the University of Florida. These students have left a legacy of excellent programming and resources for the benefit of future Gators - including you!

Your gift will allow UF to continue the tradition of offering excellent education, facilities, resources, and opportunities to students. Your support also provides the tools to further advance research and enhance the educational environment that make us all proud to call ourselves Gators. 

Every senior is being asked to give $20.14 to honor your graduation year. While the majority of gifts will be at this level, the university often receives gifts at many levels - any amount helps. Seniors will be contacted about the Senior Legacy campaign on several occasions, including at Grad Bash through the Alumni Association.

For the first time, the Honors Program is able to benefit directly from the Senior Legacy campaign. We are very excited about this opportunity, as it means our own students have the opportunity to contribute directly to a program that we hope has had a great impact on them while at UF - whether through the Honors community at Hume, honors courses, advising, student organizations, support to attend conferences such as Gatorship, or other honors opportunities. 

To make sure your Senior Legacy gift benefits the Honors Program, you can give directly through this link: www.uff.ufl.edu/Appeals/HonorsSeniors . If you decide to give during Grad Bash using a Senior Legacy card, please write in "Honors Program" as the beneficiary of your gift.

And of course, seniors aren't the only ones who can donate through the Senior Legacy campaign. Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are welcome to contribute as well - in fact, you have the opportunity to recognize someone in your gift. Why not "honor" a senior honors student?

Thanks to everyone for their support of the Honors Program - we couldn't do this without you!

3.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Honors Daily and Walk-in Advising End This Week (TODAY):
The Honors Daily and Walk-in Advising will wrap up with the final day of classes for the semester on Wednesday, April 23. If you have submissions for the Honors Daily, please submit those soon. We will continue to be available for advising appointments throughout the summer. The Honors Daily and Walk-in Advising will resume with the first day of the fall semester in August.
