Join the team for the 2009 Tampa Bay Start! Heart Walk
Cardiovascular disease, is the leading cause of death in this country, and claims almost as many lives each year as the next 7 leading causes of death combined.
The USF Honors College/Undergraduate Research team will be participating in this year's Start! Heart Walk by walking and by raising funds that are needed for heart disease and stroke research and education. The walk will be on Saturday, November 14th at 8am. It will be held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Each year the money that is raised by USF is given back to USF in the form of grants for cardiovascular research and education.
To join our team, click on the link below and you will be taken to the web page. On the web page, click My Team Page and Join our Team to register online! You can use the online fund-raising tool to email your friends, family and colleagues to ask them to support our team and our cause! The more people we have working to defeat heart disease and stroke-the better, so please join me today!
This year the USF Honors College/Undergraduate Research team fund-raising goal is $1,000.00. However, you do not have to raise money to participate; you can sign up just to be a walker.
For more information about the Heart Walk please contact Lauren Schumacher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration for Spring/Graduation Checks
Registration for the Spring 2010 semester begins Monday, November 2nd. Students will be able to log in to their OASIS accounts the week of October 26 to view their specific time of registration on November 2 - to view the time once in OASIS, click on Student, Registration, and then select Spring 2010 as the term.
In preparation for registration, we encourage students to call 813-974-3087 or stop by SVC 1088 to schedule an advising appointment. All first year Honors students (regardless of the number of accelerated credits earned) are required to meet with an advisor before being able to register.
Also, please be sure to check OASIS to make sure you do not have any holds that will prevent registration. The only hold you should have prior to November 2 is the Registration Appointment Time Hold (this virtual hold will be lifted once your assigned registration time occurs). Please note that there may be additional holds (cash collections, parking services, final transcript needed from Admissions, etc) that will prevent you from registering for spring courses. I strongly encourage you to check your OASIS account (once logged in, click on Student, then Registration, then Registration Status) during the weeks ahead to make sure that you address any holds that may arise.
For students planning to graduate in May 2010, please schedule an advising appointment with your departmental major advisor prior to registration to confirm that you will meet all degree requirements by the end of spring.
