From the
The Honors Center, and in particular the
Great Hall, is quickly becoming a focal
point for the College's wide range of academic and cultural events, including
lectures, movies, and other programs. In
between these scheduled activities, it's
also a great place to study or socialize
with your friends and colleagues.
Over the next week, for example, there
are four scheduled events in the great
hall. These include:
(1) a lecture on Inequality and the Transition to Adulthood by the well-known
sociologist, Susan Campet-Lundquis
(Tuesday, 10/18, 5:30pm);
(2) the third and final presidential debate (Wednesday, 10/19, 9:00pm);
(3) a lemonade break (Thursday, October 20, 1:00-3:00pm);
(4) a presentation by our 2016 Duckenfield Scholars (Monday, October 24,
5:00pm)--an event especially recommended for those interested in applying for the scholarship in the coming
weeks.
Please be sure to check Facebook
and Twitter, and read the Honors emails
to keep up with Honors events. Those
are the easiest ways to always know
whats happening in the Honors Center!!
I look forward to seeing you at one or
more of these events, or any time you
feel like spending some time in the
Great Hall or the Honors Center!

INFORMATIONAL MEETING
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18 (tomorrow)
7-8pm in BRACKETT 211
UNIQUE OPORTUNITY TO GAIN TRULY INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE AND EARN GLOBAL POLITICS MINOR
IN SPRING IN EUROPE AND SPEND NO MORE THAN IF
YOU STAY HERE AT CLEMSON.
Spring Semester in Belgrade, Serbia is a program developed by the Political
Science Department and offers 15 credit hours five Clemson courses (no
transfer) taught by first class European professors to our group of 8-10 students only. There are two one-day excursions and one 7-day to Bosnia and
Croatia.
All participants pay in-state tuition and program fee, which means that total
cost will not exceed your expenses here if you are in-state, and if you are outof-state you will save 10,000-12.000 dollars. Accommodation is in apartments
at the center of this vibrant city. Books are included as well as airfare, and
lunch.
The schedule is Monday-Thursday so you can use the weekends to visit Budapest, Vienna, Prague, Bratislava, Venice, Rome, Athens and other capitals.
The deadline for applications is next week. Dont miss this chance to get incredible educational enrichment while having lots of fun.
Students who did this program loved it excerpts from Assessment of the Instructor:
This program gives students opportunities that no other Study Abroad program
does. Rather than spending our time hanging out with other Americans, or
"studying with Americans abroad", like most programs, we were introduced
from the beginning to dozens of Serbian students at the faculty. We all made
our own friends among the Serbs and hung out with them most of the time.
The extracurricular activities were well planned. We got to meet lots of interesting/high ranking people and our discussions at the Faculties in Sarajevo,
Zagreb, and Banja Luka were extremely interesting. I studied abroad in Italy
last year and I've talked to many students regarding their experiences studying throughout Europe. This program in Belgrade is absolutely exceptional.
