Here's what's happening this week:

Honors Advisement is over. We enjoyed working with each of you to tackle the challenge of creating a schedule. Our best wishes for a great spring semester!

If you haven't completed an advising survey, now's the time! 
While you're at it, help SCHC seniors with their senior theses by taking this survey about mood and writing and this one about paying college athletes.

Thanks! ��
