Starting September 2, we will be taking appointments for honors advising again. Please call (352) 392-1519 to request an appointment to meet with an honors advisor. Please do not email an advisor directly to request an appointment, as our front office handles their calendars. 

Appointments are made for 30 minutes, and we do not take same-day appointments. If you need to cancel an appointment, we request advanced notice. Students who simply do not show up for their appointment may not be allowed to make another appointment for a specified amount of time.

Potential topics for honors advising appointments: long-term planning, academic and/or extracurricular involvement, double majors/minors, graduate/professional school, etc.

Very specific questions regarding major requirements or certain courses in your major should be referred to your major/college advisor. Also note that if you need to change your major, you should meet with the college advising office of the major you intend to change into. If you need to drop a course after drop/add week, you should go to your college advising office. College advising contacts are available here: http://www.ufadvising.ufl.edu/advisers.aspx 

Fall walk-in hours for quick questions will take place each week with Kristy Spear in 343 Infirmary:

Thursdays, 10:00am-12:00pm

If you are looking for specific feedback in a particular area and are willing to commit to following up / through with the plans made during the meeting, make a coaching appointment.

Coaching is not a time to discuss course schedules. Initial appointments are made for 30 minutes, but follow-up meetings may be made for longer depending on student needs.

ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES

10.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Amendment 1: Florida Water and Land Conservation with Bob Graham - Graham Center Event (H-Box) (NEW POSTING):
Join former U.S. Sen. and Gov. Bob Graham at 6:00pm on Thursday, September 4 in Pugh Hall for a review and discussion of the Florida water and land conservation amendment that Florida voters will have the opportunity to vote on this November. The event will include a panel featuring a pro/con discussion with Jon Mills, Dean Emeritus of the Levin College of Law and David Hart from the Florida Chamber of Commerce.

Amendment 1, the Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment, funds the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to acquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands by dedicating 33 percent of net revenues from the existing excise tax on documents for 20 years. Conservation lands include: wetlands and forests; fish and wildlife habitats; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources; beaches and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and historic or geologic sites.

Amendment 1 will appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot. Once approved by the voters, it would go into effect on July 1, 2015. Based on current projections, the amendment would provide more than $5 billion over the next 10 years for conservation and restoration of land and water resources.

This program is cosponsored by the Bob Graham Center for Public Service, League of Women Voters Alachua County/Gainesville, and UF/IFAS Center for Public Issues Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources.

15.	RESEARCH: Call for Submissions - Girls Studies Undergraduate Research Journal (NEW POSTING):
Girls Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal for Undergraduate Research is a peer reviewed, open access journal that publishes the work of undergraduate students on topics such as the socialization of female adolescents, gender expectations, identity, body image, the impact of media on girls, and girl empowerment. Submissions of an interdisciplinary nature as well as from across the disciplines--for example, from sociology, history, literature, cultural studies, education, art, and feminist theory (to name a few)--are welcomed.

The aim of Girls Studies is to provide a forum for undergraduate students in a variety of disciplines to engage in conversations of gender and equality, particularly as such topics relate to the field of girls studies. We hope that, by participating in this particular academic discourse, students will critically engage in these issues beyond their undergraduate studies, either in graduate work or in their professional lives.

We invite undergraduates of any institution to submit the following:
- Editorial, opinion, or perspective essays
- Research papers
- Reviews of relevant media (books, movies, television)

Further information can be found, and submissions made, at our website: http://gsj.columbiasc.edu/  

Inquiries can be sent to Dr. Heather Hahn ([log in to unmask]) or Dr. Allan Nail ([log in to unmask]), editors.

The first issue will be published in spring 2015 and thereafter in the fall and spring of each academic year. Deadline for consideration in the first issue is November 30.

Girls Studies is produced through the joint efforts of the Gender and Women's Studies Program and the Academic Skills Center at Columbia College, SC.
