I hope you all had a super (safe and warm) spring break! I definitely had eye-opening adventures down in hot Yucatan, Mexico on one of the SAS Honors Global Experience trips, led by Dean Nazario. If there's one thing I took away from that trip, it is that things aren't as you are made to believe. If you are ever considering one of these Global Experience trips, I certainly recommend the Yucatan one.
Now that we have officially entered the spring season, I hope you get the chance to do some spring-cleaning with your schedule and make time to enjoy some of the events and opportunities I put together for you below!
Do you have any pictures of SAS Honors events (or Global Experience Trips) you'd like to share?
Send them our way to firstname.lastname@example.org! Please include your name, the name and date of the event, and names of people in the photograph. Please note that photos may be featured on SAS Honors social media, including our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Today, March 21st is the LAST DAY TO WITHDRAW from a course with a W designation.
