Greetings from Tulane!
This is the first email on the new Honors listserv and you are receiving this because you are currently listed as an Honors student. I hope this message finds you well and excited about returning to Tulane. It has been a long and difficult semester for all of us. I hope that through it all it has been a growing time for you.
The Honors Program is back on campus and Ms. Maxine, Ms. Louise, and I are in the office ready to welcome you back and help! Now for some announcements and general housekeeping. Remember! Always check the blog for the latest information. Many of the links below go directly to blog posts. Tulane Honors Blog
HONORS COURSES: The total number of H courses are fewer this semester, but that will change in the fall! In the meantime, please consider adding an honors option to a course for which you are currently registered. See the details here.
COMMUNITY SERVICE: Many of you have already expressed a desire to help rebuild New Orleans. We met today with the folks from Service Learning and we are considering ways to help in the community. One possibility is to adopt a local school and have work days (one day commitments doing things like painting, building playground equipment, etc.) and regular tutorials. Please be thinking about how you might like to participate!
STUDENT HONORS COMMITTEE: We will be forming a new student Honors Committee that will meet with the faculty committee, coordinate social and service events (see above), and offer us guidance on what YOU would like to have in the Honors Program. If you are interested in serving on this committee please send me an email! We would like to have 2 from each class (year).
SENIORS: THESIS & GRADUATION Be sure to check out the details about the requirements for your thesis and graduation here.
FRESHMEN: The TIE DYE PARTY is on! The shirts survived the storm (the dye did not; I can just imagine what the Balfor people thought when they walked into the dorm kitchen with over 100 condiment bottles filled with dye!) and our party is scheduled for SATURDAY Jan. 14th at 5:30pm next to Butler. Our own band The Zoo will be playing!
I look forward to seeing you all in January! Have a safe, happy, and prosperous New Year!
