Hey School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program Students!
Not only is E.T. phoning home, but so am I to get those Thanksgiving plans ready. There's certainly no place like home. This week's a short one, because of our big holiday feast coming up. However, that doesn't mean there aren't some events this week. Don't let the weather stop you!
Check out the Artists Collective Writing Workshop today at the SASHP Main Office from 8 to 10 PM!
Some important announcements:
Because of the short week, we have some schedule changes. Remember that Tuesday is following the Thursday schedule and Wednesday is following a Friday schedule this week!
And if the SAS Honors seminar course you want is closed, add yourself to the waiting list here!
If you're still looking for a cool course or two to add, take a look at the SAS Signature Spring 2017 Course called "Russia: Between Empire and Nation?" taught by Professor Edyta Bojanowska and another called, "The Arts of Power: Ritual, Myth, and Propaganda from the Age of Augustus to the World of Wikileaks," taught by Professor Alastair Bellany.
And last but not least, Rutgers Giving Day is coming up on Tuesday, November 29! Show your support and make this day scarlet! Want to donate to the School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program? Use this link here! Remember that even a little bit is something!
And that's all for this week, folks. Tune in next week for another flurry of events (instead of snow, hopefully)! I hope you all gorge yourselves full on wonderful food!

Popcorn for the People
Enactus Rutgers is partnering with Popcorn for the People - a nonprofit company that employs adults on the autism spectrum. They are a vendor at all RU Athletics games, so we need volunteers to help sell gourmet popcorn alongside the employees with autism. The next opportunity to volunteer is at the Football game on 11/25 from 3pm-7pm. Enactus can provide community service hours for the event. NO ticket needs to be bought, we will have wristbands for all volunteers to enter the stadium. For more information, they can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to volunteering, we are looking for organizations to buy popcorn in bulk, and sponsor the company.
