All-College Honors Newsletter Mid November EDITION: 2015

Check out our new Riddle Contest at the end of your newsletter. One lucky winner has already been chosen for a Tim Hortons gift card. You could be next!

Thank you for your attention and time in opening this email. The All-College Honors Program's Student Board and newly founded Honors Student Association is proud to present our third bi-weekly newsletter.

This is an effort to increase effective communication within the Honors Program without having an excessive number of emails.

During the academic year, we anticipate disseminating this newsletter at the beginning and middle of every month
