Welcome, fellow SAS Honors students, to a wonderfully new year at Rutgers!
We hope you have all had a delightful summer, particularly one that was anywhere between relaxing to productive! As we prepare for the new academic year, we encourage you to check out the weekly SAS Honors Newsletter at http://sashonors.rutgers.edu/news/honors-newsletter for important announcements, exciting events, and career-boosting opportunities.
All of the SASHP staff are so happy to have all of you – our continuing and new students – back on campus – come see us!
Isn't summer supposed to be slow and lazy? Not in the SAS Honors Program!
Summer 2015 was a busy one. At the beginning of the summer we welcomed over one hundred members of the Class of 2019 to campus for our Peer Mentor gathering at the Werblin Center on Busch Campus. The incoming Honors students spent the morning with their peer mentors stomping balloons and playing games, and then shared stories over lunch. We hope that many friendships were born on that day!
By mid-summer our Sakai Summer Reading blog started to hum as students finished reading Tracy Kidder's riveting account of genocide and redemption, Strength in What Remains, and began to share their insights and exchange ideas with fellow students. Many of our students met the hero of Kidder's story, Deo, at our Summer Reading Program and Induction ceremony on Friday, August 28. Dean Karen Dentler, who runs our Summer Reading Program, once again picked a winner!
In July, the Honors Admission Committee read over 140 applications from continuing and transfer students applying to the SASHP. We invited forty outstanding students to become members of the SASHP. We welcomed them at a special induction ceremony on Monday, August 31.
For students who are registered in the Honors Colloquium this semester, please note that there will be NO CLASS this Wednesday, September 2. The first Honors Colloquium is scheduled to meet on Wednesday, September 9 at Hickman Hall, Room 138.
