Welcome New Honors Students!

Dear students,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 academic school year!  It’s a beautiful morning and we are excited to have you in class today!

If you were unable to make the honors convocation ceremony this past Thursday, August 22nd, we have an update for you–please watch our video:

As we mentioned in the video, you will get to participate in Relatable Interest Groups this year, otherwise known as RINGS.  These RINGS will be hosted by six of your honors faculty (if you didn’t get to meet them, here’s a snippet of their classes!!)

It’s important that you choose your RING today or tomorrow.  They include the following:

The Happiness Project RING, hosted by Prof. Dehlia Wallis, professor of Psychology will explore all areas of positive psychology, your own happiness, and what happiness brings to others. Fun service projects will be involved!

The Coffee RING, hosted by Dr. Lennie Irvin, professor of English, will encourage students to learn about and try coffee you possibly haven’t explored before.  Coffee shop visits may be involved. 🙂

The Rainbow RING, hosted by Dr. Serafine, professor of history,will focus on LGBTQ+ themes, topics, and peoples.  This group will be a safe space for questions, exploration, advocacy, and more.

The Music RING, hosted by Dr. Dustin Tune, professor of Philosophy, will look at all aspects of music: playing, listening, composing, etc.  Get in Tune with Dr. Tune!

The Social Networking RING, hosted by Profs. Slonaker and Ramsey, professors of Sociology and Speech, will explore how to increase your social networking to benefit your future!

The Finance and Other Stuff RING, hosted by Dr. Anderson, professor of history, will look at important aspects of finance that aren’t ever taught in a college setting.  Learn about credit cards, loans, how to save and budget, etc.  Dr. Anderson has a wide breadth of knowledge about various subjects–feel free to ask him to talk about Other Stuff as well!

Fall 2019 Registration

Dear students,

Fall registration is upon us!  I will be registering all students who send me their CRNs on Tuesday, April 9, 2019.

Please follow this link to view the fall 2019 Honors Academy course schedule.

Per usual, please take a look at your ISP in Aces (GPS) and search which courses you need this fall.  Please look at the honors schedule above to determine which honors courses you will enroll in and then find your non-honors courses in Aces.  Once you have found ALL your CRNs (both honors and non-honors), please send me an email by THIS Sunday at noon (4/7/19) with your CRNs, the course title, and your banner ID.

For example:

Banner ID: 901809321
ENGL 1301, 14804

CRIJ 1301, 23528

SPCH 1315, 35947

HIST 1301, 33222

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Keep in mind that if you want to participate in early registration you need to enroll in at least one honors course.

Also—if you want to register for BIOL 1406, 1407, CHEM 1411, 1412, you will need to visit or call that department to get department approval for the course.  Please also make sure you have taken all prerequisites needed for the courses you plan to enroll in or I may not be able to register you.
