Dear School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program Students,
Once upon a time in a far off college, there lay a honors program in the middle of midterms season. And in this college bloomed some Honors Colloquium events, tickets to a show, preparation for the spring, and an Artist’s Collective with a First Year Showcase. All wished ardently for the students of the Honors Program to take notice of their plight, so they ventured into the woods of Rutgers to seek what they thought they desired most.
The way was clear. The light was good. They had no fear nor no one should. The woods are just trees. The trees are just woods. No need to be afraid there. . . .There’s something in the glade there.
As they ventured through the woods, their dreams came true, not free. Nothing was black or white, only they decided what’s good. They learned to be careful what they say, because children will listen and are wishes.
As now you venture through the woods, be careful what path you take and don’t be led astray. This weeks newsletter has some landmarks that could help you on your way, but be careful. You may not want what you wish. And if you need a friend to help you through the woods, be sure to check out this blog post on making friends at Rutgers.
In the meantime, here's a soundtrack to keep your spirits up. Also, be sure to see more events here.
Best of Luck,
Student Director of Honors Media
