On Wednesday, November 28, from 6:30-8:30 pm, Honors Student Council will be hosting an “Honors Open Forum” in the new Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Building. The forum will be an opportunity for Honors students to meet the Honors faculty who will be teaching Spring 2012 Honors courses and discuss course design, learning objectives, and class activities. Moreover, research faculty will be present to talk about gaining undergraduate research positions, whether it be in liberal arts or the sciences and engineering.
In addition, students can learn more about the upcoming changes to the University Honors Program, current undergraduate research programs such as University Research Scholars, and opportunities for prestigious fellowships and study abroad. This event will be an excellent opportunity to meet the executive director of Honors and Undergraduate Research, Dr. Sumana Datta, as well as the rest of the HUR staff.
