All Arts & Sciences Honors-qualified students should review the Honors Course registration information on the Arts & Sciences Honors Program web page to self-enroll into an Honors Course for Fall 2020.
The RAPs have been suspended for AY2020-21 and therefore no RAP fees will be charged. However, every incoming student will have the opportunity to receive a First Year Academic Experience. If you have questions about your housing assignment, please see the Housing FAQ page or contact email@example.com. If you have questions about registration, please be on the lookout for future communications from the university as fall semester planning is still underway. The university is committed to ensuring that students can return to campus in a safe manner. We really appreciate your patience during this time and look forward to seeing you in the fall.
Christine Macdonald, Senior Instructor in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric, has enjoyed teaching in Honors RAP since 2008. Outside of Honors RAP she teaches a service-learning course in Grant Writing in which students write grants for local nonprofits, and an Academic Proposal Writing course in which students write UROP grants in support of their academic research. In addition to helping students craft analytical writing assignments, she enjoys the outdoors through hiking and gardening. As an undergraduate she studied for a semester in Madrid, Spain, and hopes to take the family traveling more frequently before the kids leave for college. Her dearest travel wish is to journey across the globe to Australia.
With an interest in nineteenth-century American Literature, in her dissertation she explored the law and literature of slavery, linking her interdisciplinary study through the concept of jurisdiction; she will gladly regale you with fascinating details from this project if you ask. Her current projects include writing children’s picture books and she is also hard at work on an historical novel set within the Civil War.
