What a beautiful day to be outside and read the SAS Honors Newsletter! I hope you all enjoyed the wonderful weekend, as it was splendidly sunny all over campus. I'd also like to congratulate all those who have been inducted to Phi Beta Kappa, Cap & Skull, and Alpha Epsilon Delta honor societies over the weekend!
Speaking of achievements, if you ever want to share an achievement, including awards, internships, employments, or other victories, that you or an SAS Honors friend has recently earned, feel free to shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get a shout-out on our next SASHP Newsletter and/or Facebook page. It is great to celebrate each other's successes, and you never know, you just might inspire someone to strive for something new!
Besides that, there are some important announcements and events coming soon (even today!), so check them out below!
