Hey School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program Students!
Now that it's November, all I can think about is all the wonderful food I'm going to consume during Thanksgiving. For those who can't go home during the break, you can attend the Friendsgiving event at Rutgers and have food with other students who can't go home!
In other news, DON'T FORGET TO VOTE TOMORROW! If you're on campus and don't know where you're going to vote, check out the Youth Political Participation Program Voter Information website for more information. Please exercise your right to vote; people suffered to be able to give you this right. I think Terminator 2's John Connor got it right: "The whole thing goes: The future's not set. There's no fate but what we make for ourselves."
Event-wise, check out the Artists Collective Playwriting/Play Adaption session today at 7 PM. The SASHP ArtistsCollective is also collecting works for its “The World of Dreams: Surrealism and Dream Interpretation," exhibition, so submit works! There's also a Rutgers Revolutionary for 250 Years: Day of Revolutionary Thinking Lecture this Thursday that counts as an Honors Colloquium event!
Want a quick read? Check out this blog post by Kim Peterman.
If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, always feel free to contact us at 848-932-7964 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Call for Artists of All Media! “The World of Dreams: Surrealism and Dream Interpretation"
“One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.” ~ Salvador Dalí
The SASHP Artist’s Collective is open to submissions for “The World of Dreams: Surrealism and Dream Interpretation,” an exhibition and event. The Parisian surrealist group, spearheaded by Andre Breton in the early 1920’s, sought to “resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality,” most notably through automatic writing and representational visuals of shocking juxtapositions. Artists like Paul Eluard, Rene Magritte and Salvador Dali often undertook such a resolution through starkly depicting images from their own dreams; this was seen as a mode of unlocking the unconscious mind, in which the true nature of humane reality was to be found. Artists of all media are welcome to submit to this exhibit; your inspirations are your own dreams. You may create a piece which signifies a lesson you’ve learned from a dream, an abstract or concrete interpretation of a dream, or, like Dali, a stark depiction of dream images. How you interpret your inspiration will not be judged or evaluated, so feel free to interpret your inspiration as you see fit. Those who appreciate the weird and abstract are *very* welcome. Those who appreciate the blatant and concrete are *very *welcome. You are all *very *welcome.*
Spring and Summer 2017 Study Abroad: Global Experiences
Today's students are more international than those of any previous generation. Study Abroad programs remain the gold standard for pursuing academic studies in other countries, but many students are also interested in short, intensive experiences of one to three weeks. The SAS Honors Program is pleased to offer its students such global, interdisciplinary opportunities: China, Mexico, Ireland, and Spain!

The Rutgers Journal of Bioethics: A Call for Papers
As members of the Bioethics Society of Rutgers University, we hope to raise general awareness of issues in bioethics within the Rutgers community by method of discussion and publication. Although the beliefs and opinions regarding bioethical issues of this group are not unanimous, we are united by our ardent belief that the student population at Rutgers should be made aware of the implications of biological research, medicine, and other topics of bioethical controversy.
In order to bring to light these issues, we are now accepting any papers that fall under the vast umbrella that is bioethics. All papers will be considered for possible publication. Some example subjects are medical treatment, biological warfare, research ethics, medical sociology, social justice, history of medicine/science, medical case analysis, eugenics, gene therapy, human cloning, medical malpractice, and healthcare policy; however, you are not limited to these topics.
