It's a beautiful day and a bittersweet start to the last week of classes. As we wrap up everything we've learned all semester, there are still a few things I'd like to share with you before the storm (of final exams).
Do you have any photos from this year's SAS Honors events? Rebecca Padersky and I are on a grand hunt for them. Please share by sending them to our newly created email firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name (for photo credit), the event/people featured, and date of the event!
Note: They may be featured on our SASHP Facebook page and grant you instant fame.
Would you like to be a SAS Honors Program Ambassador for 2017-2018? Student Ambassadors are an integral part of recruitment for the SAS Honors Program. Ambassadors are trained early in the spring semester for participation in the SAS Honors Program Scholars Days serving as panelists and luncheon hosts. We hope you will apply!
Applications are due by 5:00 pm, Thursday, November 30. Click here for the application. If you have any questions, please contact Dean Hashemi or Karen Nagy at email@example.com
Do you have some news to share about your accomplishments, cool things you are doing at Rutgers, fun facts and profound concepts you've learned in your courses? Send your news to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to tweet about it at @RU_SASHP or under the hashtag #SASHP.

Enactus Rutgers is partnering with Popcorn for the People - a nonprofit company that employs adults on the autism spectrum. They are a vendor at all RU Athletics games, so we need volunteers to help sell gourmet popcorn alongside the employees with autism. The next opportunity to volunteer is at the Football game on 11/25 from 3pm-7pm. Enactus can provide community service hours for the event. NO ticket needs to be bought, we will have wristbands for all volunteers to enter the stadium. For more information, they can contact me at email@example.com. In addition to volunteering, we are looking for organizations to buy popcorn in bulk, and sponsor the company.
Winter Wishes is an annual holiday-themed event partnering with six pre-schools in the City of New Brunswick. The pre-schools are a part of the Puerto Rican Action Board (also known as PRAB), a human services agency in the city. It provides over 400 New Brunswick pre-school children with gifts for the holiday season that their families may not be able to provide. Each child’s wish is “adopted” by a member of the Rutgers community to create a personal holiday experience. The children will also be invited to a holiday event to remember with activities, games, and to receive their gifts.
HOW: Register online starting November 1 here to adopt a child's wish! Wish adoption registration is open until Friday, November 17! Drop of your gift at Douglass Student Center, Trayes Hall on Tuesday, November 21 between 3:00PM-8:00PM. Find more information here.
