Welcome to the SAS Honors Program!
Welcome to the Spring 2017 semester!
I hope that you enjoyed winter breaks that were the perfect mix of fun and relaxation with family and friends.
We look forward to catching up with you and learning about your winter break adventures at the first Tea with the Dean of the semester on Thursday, January 26. Feel free to stop by the SASHP Main Office at 35 College Avenue any time between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. to share your winter break stories and hear about your friends’ and classmates’ adventures over break.
This spring our Honors community is humming with activity – from our second annual Winter Formal Dinner Dance on Saturday, February 11, to our many Scholars Day recruiting events, to our signature lecture series, the Heffner Open Mind Lecture, on Monday, April 3. We are honored that Martha Minow, the Dean of Harvard Law School, will deliver the Heffner lecture. We hope that you will all attend what is certain to be a thought-provoking and memorable public address.
While the fall semester often feels long and lingering, the spring semester seems to race towards graduation. I wish our graduating seniors the very best as they complete their Honors theses and capstone projects, await news about jobs and graduate school applications, and enjoy their last semester “on the banks”. We look forward to celebrating the many accomplishments of our graduating seniors at our Senior Gathering in early May.
Here's a picture of last year's Senior Gathering!
I invite you to browse our website and read our weekly newsletter to learn more about all the opportunities that our Honors community provides our students. I also hope that you’ll stop by my drop-in office hours, from noon on 2 p.m. Mondays throughout the spring semester at 35 College Ave. I look forward to meeting you and discussing your plans for Rutgers and beyond.
Best wishes for a wonderful for Spring Semester!
