Dear School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program Students,

Happy Monday! Or foggy Monday as the case may be. We’re now in our third week of the semester(though really, my heart is still lying out in the August sun) and the rubber has really started to hit the road both in terms of classes and extracurriculars. Still, there are some great events this week that you should definitely squeeze into your schedule.

Be sure to check out this week’s Tea with the Dean where we’ll be talking with the Eagleton Institute and also have fun at the two Artist’s Collectiveevents. Also, head over to  Study Abroad Week, your one stop shop to find out all the ways to study nearly anywhere in the world for a week, a month, or a whole semester. And if all you have are a few moments here and there waiting at a bus, be sure to read the Honors Blogs, particularly Tanya’s tips on staying organized and Aishwarya’s take on conspiracy theories.

Outside of that enjoy your week and if things seem rough, just take look at this.

Kim Peterman
Student Director of Honors Media
