Dear School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program Students,
This is it. This is your last day of classes for the semester so now you've gotta buckle down and study. For about 3/4 of you, this is just the end of another semester. But for 1/4 of you, this is your last semester. These are the some of the last few memories you'll make at Rutgers University. I'm in the latter group.
I've never really been good at goodbyes, honestly. I'm more of a "see you later" kind of person. So, see you all later.
It was a pleasure writing for you all and sharing all of my pop culture references. I'm leaving you in good hands next year with Kim Peterman as the Newsletter Editor / Student Director of Honors Media for next year!
And for our blog, we'll have Fairooz Khondker as our Blog Editor / Assistant Director of the SAS Honors Blog!
Congratulations to both!
Now, onto some of the last events of the semester!
There's an SASHP De-Stress Night Sponsored by the Peer Mentors Program in McCormick Lounge on Tuesday, May 2 from 8:30 – 10:30 PM. Come out to relax!

CCNP (Center for Cognitive Computational Neuropsychiatry) Inaugural Mini-Symposium
The goal of this conference is to leverage the expertise in Princeton’s department of Psychology and Neuroscience Institute, and in Rutgers’ departments of Psychology, Psychiatry and Computer Science, Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care, Robert Wood Johnson Hospital, and the Rutgers Brain Health Institute, in a major collaborative initiative that has the potential to be much greater than the sum of its individual parts.
Dr. Josh Gordon, Director of NIMH Lecture: On Being a Circuit Psychiatrist
Abstract: Modern neurobiological approaches have revolutionized the study of neural circuits and their relationship to behavior. We now have the ability to identify, monitor and manipulate specific circuit elements with exquisite specificity. I will describe my laboratory’s application of circuit technologies to characterize the neural circuitry underlying psychiatrically-relevant behaviors in mouse models. I will then discuss what might be necessary in order to harness the power of these tools to develop novel therapies with the capacity to transform mental health care
