3.	EVENT: Fisher Investments Info Session:
Fisher Investments is a privately-held investment management firm that manages portfolios for high-net-worth private clients and some of the world's preeminent institutions. BusinessWeek named Fisher Investments one of the "Best Places to Launch a Career" and the company was recognized by Forbes as one of the "Best Financial Companies to Work for Right Now". 

They are recruiting UF Gators from **all educational backgrounds** to join a dynamic work force as Investment Associates and Account Executives. Their ideal candidates thrive in a fast-paced environment, are goal-oriented, possess a great attitude, and communicate extremely well. They have immediate openings.

Fisher Investments will hold an info session for Honors Gators on Wednesday, October 1 from 10:00-11:00am in the Hume Classroom. For more information, https://www.facebook.com/events/782717188435997/ 

4.	EVENT: Medical School Admissions Q&A:
Admission to medical school is the single most important step in becoming a physician.  The application, interview, and admission processes are often unclear and clouded with conflicting advice from people with a wide variety of expertise and experience. With that in mind, the Honors Program has invited Dr. Paul Gulig to answer your questions about medical school admissions on Monday, October 13, from 5:00-6:00pm in the Graham Gallery.

Paul Gulig is a professor of molecular genetics and microbiology at the UF College of Medicine and served two terms on the medical admissions committee. He has had numerous UF undergraduates perform research for credit in his lab on their path to medical school, and he teaches microbiology to medical students.  
 
This presentation will cover statistics about medical admissions across the U.S. and at UF and will provide practical advice on undergraduate studies and experiences, putting together an effective application, and having a successful interview. It is aimed at being highly interactive.
