Dear School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program Students,
So I went to the wedding of a family friend this weekend and her brother was the minister. He started it by saying, “Mwarriage,” and then proceeded to quote The Princess Bride for a full minute before getting into the ceremony. And since it is midterm season and every week feels like roaming through the fire swamp, it was much needed step out of college life. Thankfully, this week there are a ton of events to help you do just that.
Take a break to enjoy some art and film with the Artist’s Collective. Learn about opportunities throughout the university at the Passport to Student Success panel sponsored by the SASHP Peer Mentors. Learn about issues involving the military and LGBTQ+ at the Voices of LGBTQ Veteran and Active ServiceColloquium. Check out things for coming weeks as well.
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
