News & Events
The Spring 2017 schedule is now available for viewing! Registration will begin the first week of October for Honors students, but we are making the announcement now so students are aware of three new courses currently in development:
The votes are in! Dr. Manning was presented with the 2015 Outstanding Teaching Award at the Spring 2016 Honors Graduation Ceremony. The event was held at the Alumni Conference & Welcome Center on Wednesday evening, May 11. Dr. Manning (Department of English), was nominated for ENGLISH 310: Honors Advanced Composition. The University Honors Student Association would also like to acknowledge the other nominees, Dr. Julia Chybowski (Department of Music) and Dr. Paul Klemp (also from the Department of English). Congratulations and best wishes, Dr. Manning!
The University Honors Program at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh will hold the Spring 2016 Honors Graduation Ceremony on Wednesday, May 11, at 5:30 p.m. The event will take place at the Alumni Welcome & Conference Center • 625 Pearl Avenue • Oshkosh. Please join us in congratulating these fifty-six students (fourteen Associates and forty-two Graduates), each of whom has successfully completed all University Honors Program requirements while pursuing the majors and minors hereby noted:
The Spring 2016 Honors Thesis Symposia will begin at 4:00 each afternoon from Monday, May 2, through Friday, May 6. Beginning at 3:30, FREE parking will be available in Lot 15 (adjacent to Blackhawk). For the Symposia schedule, sequence of presentations, and locations, please open the attached announcement. We hope you can join us!
The University Honors Student Association has invited Dr. Erin Winterrowd as the next guest for Pizza with Professors, a longstanding UHP tradition. Dr. Winterrowd, a faculty member in the Department of Psychology since 2007, has also contributed significantly to the UHP both as an HNRS 175 instructor and as an Honors Thesis advisor (more times than anyone on the Honors staff can count!). Winterrowd's varied research interests include gender and cultural influences on human behavior (with particular attention to issues of suicide), under-represented groups in science and engineering, and mental health services within the University of Wisconsin System. Please join us for another stimulating Pizza with Professors event! We'll get started--and the pizza will be ready too--at 4:30. We hope to see you and your friends on Tuesday, April 12!
The UHP and the University Honors Student Association are pleased to announce this year's Spring Trip. We'll travel to Milwaukee for a guided tour of the Pabst Mansion, live entertainment, dinner, and more. The itinerary is set and we hope you are too! Note: As of April 1, this trip is sold out.
Those collection boxes were heavy! The University Honors Student Association (UHSA), the Pre-Med Society, and the American Red Cross joined forces to collect new teddy bears and other stuffed animal friends. The toys were donated to Mercy Medical Center, where they will be at the ready to offer comfort to children (or their relatives) undergoing medical care. Your gift will no doubt make any hospital stay more bear-able.
Whether you're a sprinter or a schlepper, we hope you'll join the UHP Shamrock Shufflers on Saturday morning, March 12! Friends and family are welcome too. The registration is due to the Honors Office (Oviatt House) on February 29 and the fee is just $20. Be sure to include your T-shirt size when you sign up. Proceeds from the Shamrock Shuffle benefit BioLife Plasma Services. For the registration form and more information:
