HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Honors Daily on Hiatus Next Week:
The Honors Daily will be on hiatus next week. If you have events, meetings, or other announcements that you would like to run, please submit them by Wednesday or Thursday so they can run this week. As always, the link to the submission form is at the bottom of this email.

2.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Town Hall Meeting on the Renovation of Newell Hall:
Since 2009, students have listed inadequate study space on campus as an obstacle to their academic success at the University of Florida. In response, Student Government lobbied for and obtained $10 million in funding from the State Legislature to transform Newell Hall into a much needed, innovative learning space.

Students will have the opportunity to provide input on this project at Student Government’s Town Hall for the renovation of Newell Hall on Thursday, October 2 at 6:30pm in Holland 285B located in the Law School. 

FYI: The university has invited proposals from departments to move into part of Newell Hall, in addition to the student study space. Those proposals are currently being reviewed by a committee. The Honors Program submitted a proposal to relocate the Honors Office from the Infirmary. If you have input, we encourage you to attend the town hall event. If you have questions about the Honors proposal, please contact Dr. Johnson.

3.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Calling all ACR’s (Alachua County Residents):
Did you go to high school in Alachua County? Do you love the Honors Program? We’re looking for honors students from the Gainesville area to assist Dr. Johnson with potential Honors Program info sessions at local high schools. Dates have not been arranged, although high schools have been contacted for visits later this semester. Complete this form to show interest: http://bit.ly/1yrlSbf  

4.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Check ISIS / Spring Registration Prep:
Spring registration will be here sooner than you think, so now is a great time for first year students in particular to check ISIS for holds and other information. Most of these holds cannot be removed by an honors advisor, so you don’t want to wait until the last minute to take care of them. Early registration for first and second year honors students takes place October 30 and 31 – this date will sneak up on you! Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/310095185856869/ 

First-year students should have an alcohol education hold on their record – this hold will not be removed until you have completed the online alcohol education seminar. For more information about this hold, visit https://www.dso.ufl.edu/nsfp/first-year-experience/alcohol-education/ 

Engineering majors now have an advising hold – you must meet with an **engineering** advisor (**not honors**) to get your engineering advising hold removed. To view the list of engineering advisors by department, visit http://www.eng.ufl.edu/students/advising/who-is-my-advisor/ 

Other majors may also require you to meet with an advisor *in your department* so keep checking for these types of holds, as you can’t wait until the last minute to meet with an advisor.

Also check for other holds, including financial holds, admissions credentials holds (usually a missing HS transcript or dual enrollment transcript), and emergency contact or local address holds. Staying on top of holds will make the registration process much smoother. Note, you will not be able to register for classes until your holds are removed. No advisor is able to override that for you, not even for early registration. You are responsible for taking care of your holds in a timely manner.

While you are on ISIS, verify that UF has received your AP/IB/AICE scores – go to My Record -> Test Scores. If you do not see your scores listed, you will need to submit those scores to UF as soon as possible. Without those scores, you may have difficulty registering for courses that need those credits as prerequisites, or you may be considered off-track if you are counting those credits as tracking courses. Your spring registration start time may be impacted by the number of credit hours you have as well. If you have missing scores, you may contact College Board / IB / AICE to have them resend your scores. Alternatively, you may be able to talk to Admissions about how to verify your scores from your original reports. Please contact them directly for further clarification.

5.	INTERNSHIP: The Washington Center Info Sessions (NEW POSTING):
Interested in politics, public policy, international relations, business, health care, non-profits, education, or the arts? The Washington Center (TWC) allows UF students to earn academic credit while interning.

Both sessions will be held in 302 infirmary - Wednesday during 7th period (1:55pm) and Thursday during 3rd period (10:40am). UF liaison Regan Garner will also be available to answer questions.

36.	EVENT: Campus-wide #GatorRace (NEW POSTING):
If you can quickly navigate Florida’s campus and rapidly decipher clues about famous landmarks on campus, than a front row seat for the Missouri football game may be in your future.
 
On Wednesday, October 8 from 11:00am to 1:00pm, students can participate in the Florida Gators’ scavenger hunt - #GatorRace.
 
Beginning around 10:45am, six different clues will be tweeted out from @GZStudents about six different locations throughout UF’s campus and athletic facilities.
 
Once students think they have figured out the clue, they will have to race to the location and find a representative holding a sign with the hashtag #GatorRace on it. After students arrive at the correct location, they must tweet a photo of themselves at the location and use #GatorRace. The first 40 students to arrive at each location will receive a small prize.
 
The first team to go to every location and tweet a photo with the hashtag #GatorRace wins the grand prize of front row tickets for them and several friends for the Missouri game. Teams are allowed for the race, but may be no larger than four people.

37.	EVENT: National Coming Out Day (NEW POSTING):

With words of oppression on one wall and words of encouragement on the opposing wall, students will be able to share with the world how their experiences have shaped them into the individuals they are today. 

On Friday, October 10, come to the NCOD tent on Plaza of the Americas from 10:00am-2:00pm where we will exhibit pictures of people showing the words that affected them with words of positivity to fight the queerphobia that has affected so many within the LGBTQA+ community. 

If you are interested in being a part of the photo project, feel free to contact Pride Student Union at the University of Florida through the main Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ufpsu
