The University Honors Student Association is cosponsoring Welcome to Sarajevo, a showing of the acclaimed 1997 film, on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 4, at 7:30 p.m. in Sage 1210. It will be introduced by Mirza Mehmedovic, a Fulbright scholar in the Department of Journalism this year. A PhD candidate from the University of Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Welcome to Sarajevo is close to Mirza's heart: it is set in his homeland during the Bosnian War (1992-1995) and follows three journalists reporting from its devastated capital. A Q&A will follow. Please join us for this special opportunity.

Because we'll be running and/or walking as a team, "UHP Shufflers" do not need to register individually. However, we DO need your T shirt size (please see brochure):

All are welcome to the Fall 2014 Honors Thesis Symposia, which will take place December 1, 2, and 3 beginning at 4:00 p.m. each day.

Good news! Beginning next year, the Honors Senior Seminar (HNRS 475), which was previously offered only in spring, will be available in fall as well. As the UHP continues to grow and as more students successfully complete the Honors curriculum, we are happy to offer another option (and more flexibility) for the Honors Senior Capstone. Juniors and Seniors, please take note! In hopes that we can continue to meet demand, in fall 2015 Dr. John Lemberger will teach the first-ever fall Honors Senior Seminar (HNRS 475: "Poverty") on T & Th 6:00-7:30pm.
