Greiner Shared Interest Housing Information Session

Posted by Tim on November 28, 2016 in Academics, Honors Seminars

Are you a freshman Honors Scholar interested in civic engagement and in participating in a living/learning community of like-minded students? Consider Honors Greiner Hall Shared Interest Housing (SIH), which is an opportunity for first-year students to continue building a strong community into the sophomore year. Selected participants will live in Greiner Hall and be engaged in service for the full academic year (25 hours in the fall and 30 hours in the spring semester) with a community partner of their choosing. The Greiner SIH area will also keep Honors scholars connected to the college academically through a 1-credit fall course with guest speakers from the Buffalo community and a 1-credit spring course.

Interested students should attend our information session Friday, December 2, 2016 at 2 p.m. in 107 Capen Hall or contact Dr. Tara Jabbaar-Gyambrah at jabbaar@buffalo.edu for more information. Students must apply by Friday, February 17, 2017; applications are available on the Honors College website.
