Hey School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program Students!
After this Thanksgiving, I have no ragrets, not even a single letter. I ate so much apple pie; I didn’t hold back. And I hope you didn’t either! Thanksgiving is a great excuse to eat a lot of great food in a very short period of time. And don’t even get me started about the leftovers! Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming: events this week!
Check out these four awesome SASHP events:
1. Donuts with Dean Kim-Lee today from 2 - 4 PM in the McCormick Lounge on Busch Campus.
2. Artists Collective Playwriting/Play Adaptation Workshop on Wednesday, November 30 at the SASHP Main Office from 7 to 10 PM!
3. Want to have some fun with friends? Go to SASHP's Trivia Night in Brett Hall Lounge on Thursday, December 1 from 5 - 7 PM.
4. And if you still want to get involved in choosing the summer reading book for next year's incoming SASHP class, come to the Tea with the Dean at the SASHP Main Office (35 College Ave) at 4:30 PM!
Looking to see an interesting and thought-provoking film? Come to the film screening of Teen Behenein on Wednesday, November 30 from 3:30 - 5:30 PM in Voorhees Hall Room 105.
