Hey School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program Students!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! We're all gearing up for the Superbowl next week, where the Atlanta Falcons face off the New England Patriots. That's something to get excited about! But if you're the social-justice type, there were protests this past weekend against the immigration bans at JFK International Airport.
In our Alumni Spotlight, we have Myles Pistorius, who graduated from Rutgers College in '93! Take a look at his page here to read about what he's doing now and what advice he may have for you!
Want to attend a warm Tea with the Dean? Come to the one next Thursday, February 9 at 4:30 at 35 College Ave, the SASHP Main Office, discussing with Dr. Arthur D. Casciato, Director of Rutgers’ Office of Distinguished Fellowships, how students just like you were selected for prestigious national awards/fellowships.
Well, maybe you want something a little more, like opportunities. Well, take a look at the $5k DC Internship Award for Rutgers Undergraduates. It provides one-time awards of $5,000 to students for summer internships in the government/public service sectors in Washington, DC. Apply! You just might get it.
Maybe, just maybe, you want an opportunity to dance. Well, look no further, because the SASHP is having its Second Annual SASHP Formal: A Midwinter Night's Dream on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at 6:30 PM. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased here. Come! I know from experience that it'll be super fun.
That's all for now. Stay safe and warm!
