Hey School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program Students!

I hope you all had a wonderful spring break. We got a bit of blizzard in the middle there, so a lot of us had to break out the shovels to clean the driveways. Or maybe you were in the Yucatán with Dean Nazario or in Ireland with Paul Blaney and skipped all the snow. Well, wherever you were, you're all back now. Onto the events!

There's a Tea with the Dean specifically for juniors but all are welcome this Thursday, March 23 at 4:30 PM with Dr. Art Casciato at the SASHP Main Office at 35 College Ave. Find out how students like you were selected for national fellowships!

There's an Artists Collective Writing Workshop this Thursday, March 23 at 8 PM at the SASHP Main Office at 35 College Ave as well.

Don't forget about the Major and Minor Fair on Wednesday, March 22 from 1 - 4 PM at the Busch Campus Center! Find out about different majors and minors and get career advice!

Last but not least, applications to become an SASHP Peer Mentor are open! Do you enjoy giving advice? Do you want to guide people and have a positive impact? Apply before Sunday, April 2!

PS, look out for the Heffner Open Mind Lecture with Martha Minow and the SAS Interdisciplinary Honors Thesis Conference coming up in April!

That's all for now. Enjoy the rest of your week, SASHP!

New Honors Section: Napolean for Fall 2017!

Taught by Professor Uri Eisenzweig, this course examines the rise and fall of one of history's most fascinating figures, as well as its impact on French and world social, political, and cultural realities, throughout the 19th century and beyond. The course wil draw on the scholarship and expertise of faculty from different programs, including William Galperin (English), Jennifer Jones (History), Dan Kelemen (Political Science), Jorge Marcone (Spanish/Portuguese and Comparative Literature), Matt Matsuda (History), Susan Sidlauskas (Art History), Jonah Siegel (English), and Judish Surkis (History), providing students with a range of perspectives on the extraordinary period running from 1789 to 1815.
