Yoga with Liz!

3 May

Join Liz Sutton Wednesday, May 8 from 5:00 to 6:00 pm and Thursday, May 9 from 4:00 to 5:00 pm in the West Hall group fitness studio for some some Liz-led yoga!

The Wednesday class is for the Honors community only and is capped at 15 students, so sign up early.

The West Hall Fitness Center has lots of yoga mats or you can bring your own. No prior experience with yoga is required. Just wear clothes you can move in and bring an open mind! Feel free to email Liz with any other questions.

Needless to say, Liz is pretty excited about this.


Like, really, really excited.

What’s the Deal with the Dual Campus?

27 Aug

This year, the UHP is spearheading the Dual Campus Model.  What does that mean?

We’re in two places!  We have offices on the Mt. Vernon Campus AND in Foggy Bottom.  Find us at Ames Suite 101 (MVC) or 714 21st Street NW (FoBo).

We tried this approach first.

Just like Dr. Manhattan, we’re in two places!

But not at the same time! (At least not individually.)  For now, you can find Catherine at MVC on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and in Foggy Bottom on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  Liz will be at MVC on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and in Foggy Bottom on Tuesdays and Thursdays. (Don’t worry, it’s easily navigable when making an appointment.)

Dr. Lizhuttan

It turned out that photoshopping them blue didn’t actually give them the power to be in two places at once. So, not just like Dr. Manhattan afterall.

Honors faculty live with us now!  Well, they still have homes that they go to (we’re pretty sure), but their offices are now in the same place as staff.  We know, we know: we’re already working on getting a reality-style sitcom deal with pretty much every major network so people can enjoy our dynamic.  We’ll let you know about that too.

We’re hoping for some excellent guest stars.

A Letter to the Editor on Honors Applicant Pool Surge

23 Apr

The Hatchet reported on April 12th, 2012, that the applicant pool to the UHP has surged over the past three years.  In the story was a brief comment from Executive Director Maria Frawley that, without context, seemed a bit confusing.  Maria wrote to the Hatchet to provide the context to the comment in a letter to the editor, but the letter could not be printed.  Her letter is reproduced in full below.  Continue reading

More on the Vern in the Hatchet

10 Oct
Way better than ants, AMIRITE?

I, for one, welcome our new Honors overlords.

Today’s Hatchet has an editorial that evokes concerns that big changes coming to the Vern will make the campus lose its charm.  Read the whole thing here, and feel free to weigh in!

Do you think that an Honors presence on the Vern will shake things up on GW’s most resort-like campus?
