Live Life on the (L)edge!

22 Apr


Professor Kung is taking a lucky group of UHP-ers ROCK-CLIMBING at Earth Treks in Rockville, Maryland on Saturday, May 4!

Don’t worry, you’ll still have time to study. Kerry Lanzo will be leading a group from the Townhouse in Foggy Bottom at 10am, to return by 1:30pm, and you can leave early if you need (it’s right up the red line). The cost is $22 for entry for the day, and $11 for the materials. It’ll be well worth it to get some exercise, de-stress, and hang out with one of UHP’s coolest faculty members.

To RSVP, please send an e-mail to the uhp@gwu.edu account. The group will most likely cap at 5 or 6 to keep it small, but we’re flexible!

UHP Peer Advising Is Awesome [GW Hatchet]

8 Apr

If you’re a UHPer, you probably already know that UHP students have a great resource: the Student Peer Advisors (SPA).  Thanks to an article in today’s Hatchet, everybody else knows too!  Sunik Kim extols the virtues of a close-knit community and peer advising — just like what we have in the UHP with SPA.

Pretty awesome. SPAwesome.

From the Hatchet article:

Peer advising would not only help students from an academic standpoint, but new students could also benefit socially from older students who know more about campus life. As mentors to underclassmen, the older students in the honors program advising system hold get-togethers two to three times each month, where students can socialize.

Palisades Book Sale [SPA Event]

18 Mar

For the bookworm/bargain shopper in all of us, the SPAs have found a book sale that is sure to satisfy. This Saturday at the Palisades Library (down the street from the Vern) we’re headed over to their annual book sale.

Most books will be $1, with a $10 per bag option as well. There is also a discount room, with books at $0.25 and $3 per bag. Bring your own bag(s), because the selection is FANTASTIC. Make sure to have some cash on hand, and the sale’s proceeds will support this library.

Meet Rebekah Johnson at the West Hall Vern Express stop for a leisurely walk over at 1:30 pm on Saturday, the 23rd of March. See y’all then!
