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.	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/ 

Spring schedule of courses: http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc/201501/all/

Spring honors course descriptions (more will be added as they become available): http://www.honors.ufl.edu/courses/CoursesSpring2015.aspx

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.

3.	HONORS COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT: Honors Admissions Course Applications (NEW POSTING):
Applications are now being accepted for the IDH 4905: Honors Admissions course, Wednesdays 7th period, for the spring semester. Students in this 1-credit class will read the 2000+ application essays from incoming freshmen applying to the Honors Program. We will spend the first half of the term reviewing old essays and developing rubrics for evaluating the new essays. Students in the class also develop some of the application questions. 

Students will also serve as reviewers for the lateral admissions essays during the month of November 2014. 

To apply for the course, please respond to the following prompt in a 1-page, single-spaced essay: Develop an interesting essay topic that you think would be suitable for applicants to the UF Honors Program, and then write your response to it. Attach your application in an email to Dr. Johnson at [log in to unmask] by 5:00pm on Thursday, October 23. Please include your name and UFID on your application. Students selected will be notified by email on October 29. Lateral admission reviews will begin one week following notification.

Students who participated in the course last year may enroll again in the online section without submitting an application. If interested, please email Dr. Johnson by 5:00pm on October 23.

14.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Why Tempting Technology Can Lead to Dangerous Delegation Lecture (H-Box):
The Outsourcing Illusion: Why Tempting Technology Can Lead to Dangerous Delegation by Evan Selinger (Rochester Institute of Technology) will be delivered on Monday, October 13 at 5:30pm in Smathers Library (East), room 100. 

In The Outsourced Self, sociologist Arlie Russell Hochschild argues that Americans are increasingly delegating intimate emotional labor to service providers: child, elder, and pet caretakers, love coaches, wedding planners, rented friends, and even so-called wantologists. While these marketplace transactions hold out the promise of improving our lives, Hochschild takes a deeper look at outsourcing and shows that it can yield problematic, even tragic results: depersonalized bonds, distorted family values, an overly-instrumentalized orientation to relationships, diminished virtue, and atrophied civic life. Hochschild doesn't say much about consumer technology, but the issues she's concerned with directly apply to our relation to it. Silicon Valley expects us to embrace outsourcing creep by relying on cyber-servants: ever-expanding smart, predictive, behavior-modifying, and labor saving tools. This techno-social trajectory points to a form of life where the transformative impacts of outsourcing become more pervasive and intense. To make wise decisions when confronted with outsourcing technologies that can fundamentally impact our sensibilities, we need a clear sense of what technological outsourcing is, why it often promises more than it can deliver, and how to judge when to avoid it. The task before us, therefore, is to grasp the phenomenological contours of what I call the outsourcing illusion. 

Evan Selinger is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Rochester Institute of Technology, where he is also Affiliated Faculty with the Golisano Institute for Sustainability and the Center for Media, Arts, Games, Interaction, and Creativity (MAGIC). He's also a Fellow at The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technology. Evan's research addresses ethical issues concerning technology, science, the law, expertise, and sustainability. A prolific academic author, Evan also cares deeply about public engagement, writing for popular magazines, newspapers, and blogs, including: Wired, Slate, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, The Nation, Three Quarks Daily, Huffington Post, and The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technology.

This lecture is part of the 2014-15 speaker series The Work of the Humanities: Critical Thinking in Life and Labor organized by UF's Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere.

15.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: UF Student Social Entrepreneurs Panel (TODAY):
Social Entrepreneurship involves using the skills and strategies of business to innovatively and sustainably solve social, environmental, and/or economic social problems, locally and around the world. Some Social Entrepreneurs start for-profit businesses (like Blake Mycoskie of TOM's Shoes), other Social Entrepreneurs start nonprofits organizations (like Wendy Kopp of Teach for America), while others create new hybrid organizations like certified B-Corporations (including Patagonia, Better World Books, and Ben & Jerry's).

Join us on Friday, October 3 from 1:00-2:00pm in Stuzin 200 to hear from three student social entrepreneurs: 
- Grant Kendzior of Goals for Goals http://goalsforgoals.com

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.

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.
