Hey School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program Students!
March Madness is starting next week, as is Daylight Savings' Time (which I honestly think is an outdated tradition. Who wants to lose an hour? I don't!) Anyway, on to the events before we rush off and have our own private events during spring break!
We still have tickets available for Rutgers Jazz Ensemble I for today, March 6 at 7:30 PM at the Nicholas Music Center! Remember, this event counts as an Honors Colloquium event!
We also have a Tea with the Dean: Junior Academic Meeting (JAM) on Thursday at the SASHP Main Office at 35 College Ave at 4:30 PM. Come to learn about the SASHP Capstone Requirement! Open specifically to sophomores and juniors but all class years are invited!
And then the Artists Collective is having a FilmNight on Thursday, March 8 at 8 PM. Come see Dr. Strangelove!
Also, shoutout to JoelLegatt who graduated from the Rutgers College in 2005! Read about him over at the Honors Alumni Spotlight and see what advice he has for you!
As for our campus events, there's a talk with Bill Schluter, a former New Jersey state senator and vice chair of the State Ethics Commission, about his new book about ethical misconduct. Catch it at the Eagleton Institute of Politics tomorrow, March 7, from 3 - 5 PM.
There's also a University Career Services' sponsored event to the U.S. Department of State, New York Field Office. Attend this field trip to learn about careers in Foreign Service, law enforcement, and security. The trip is on Friday, April 7 from 10:15 AM - 4:45 PM.

The school of Arts and Sciences is offering several courses that begin in mid-March. These “minicourses” are a great way to earn extra credits this semester.
Are you thinking of dropping a class, but you don’t want to lose all the credits? Add a minicourse to make up the loss
Do you need to drop a class that you’re not doing well in, but you’ll fall below full-time? Add a minicourse to bring yourself back to 12 credits. Do you need one more credit to graduate on time? Add a minicourse to catch-up. Thinking of exploring a new academic area? Add a minicourse to explore a new subject. Most minicourses begin next week, and a few start after Spring break – they all fill-up fast, so now is the time to register.
Unfortunately, WebReg does not allow students to add classes themselves.
Come into any SAS Advising Center IN PERSON and there is an advising dean on duty who can help you add minicourses now. Advising Centers are open weekdays, 8:30am – 5pm.
Did you have an extended illness or an accident? If you had to miss classes as a result of your illness or accident, please visit a Campus Dean of Students to request a Dean's letter to give to each of your professors as soon as possible. To find a Dean of Students, please visit http://deanofstudents.rutgers.edu/locations/
