Please refer to the list below for the different groups offered as well as the meeting times and places.
Honors Film Series: Come Join Honors Film Series on Monday and Tuesday nights at 7:30 in Room 201 in Whitney. We watch different movies and discuss how they have influenced today's culture. This semester's theme is the beginning of movie sagas, from Batman to Harry Potter and everything in between. Everybody is welcome and refreshments will be provided. If interested please contact Robert Morrone at email@example.com.
Honors Video Game Group: Enjoy playing video games? Like talking about how they've progressed through the years? Curious as to how they fit into today's culture? Then come to our group in classroom 201 in Whitney on Fridays from 7-9 pm! So, come on people, it's video games! If you have any questions, shoot either of us an e-mail: Naquan McRae, firstname.lastname@example.org or Anthony Elefante, email@example.com.
Honors Board Game Group: Honors Board Game Group would like to invite all Honors students (and their friends) to join us on Fridays this semester. Started in 2010 by engineering student Matthew van der Wielen and history professor William Carrigan, the club is excited to be back again for its fourth year. Our regular time will be Fridays from 12:30pm to 4:30pm in the Honors Lounge. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Matt van der Wielen at firstname.lastname@example.org, Brittany Coleman at email@example.com, or Professor Carrigan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Honors PBL Primer: Ever watch House? Have you ever wanted to be a part of Dr. House's team? PBL Primer is an honors group where students will practice critical skills and apply their knowledge of the natural sciences by diagnosing and discussing medical cases using patient history, symptoms from disorders, diseases, and more. The goal of PBL Primer is to diagnose and understand the underlying cause of each case. Medical knowledge is not necessary, eagerness to learn is! Meeting times and places still have to be determined but if you are interested please contact Brad Fedor at email@example.com or Kelsey Opalack at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Honors Chess Group: Join the Honors Chess Group every Monday from 8-10 pm in the Whitney Center Honors Lounge! Each session includes chess strategies, tactics, puzzles, and some history and pop culture, plus sufficient time to battle across a 64-square medieval battleground, now referred to by modern society as the chessboard. For any questions please contact Mark Pultrone at email@example.com or Ryan Hogan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Honors Sudoku Group: Join the Honors Sudoku Puzzle Group on Fridays from 2-4pm in Whitney Honors Classroom 202. Everyone in attendance can collectively solve the puzzle. Those who do not like Sudoku should not be deterred however, as other logic puzzles are featured and solved as well. Refreshments will be served at some meetings. For questions or comments, contact Jeff Kolarovic at email@example.com or Rob Waldron at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Honors Racquetball: Interested in racquetball? We will be discussing rules and a brief history of the sport before making our way to the rec center to play racquetball. We encourage players of all skill levels and even students who have never played before. Please wear appropriate attire and athletic shoes. Equipment will be provided by the rec center however if you have your own equipment feel free to bring it. If you are interested please contact me as soon as possible, I need to know how many courts to rent! Also please feel free to send any questions to Nick Persicketti at email@example.com or Mark Errera at firstname.lastname@example.org.
