Introduction for non-BHUM Undergraduates

Greetings, and welcome to the Christian Institute for the Study of Liberal Arts at the Great Books Honors College of Faulkner University. We are very excited about your joining our community of learners and look forward to interacting with you.

To ensure that you will be able to engage your BHUM courses as fully and successfully as possible from the very beginning, please:

    1. Review these technical requirements and ensure that your computer’s hardware, software, and Internet connection meet the minimum specifications listed. If they do not, you must resolve these matters. If you have any questions or would like any recommendations about how to resolve any technical issues you may have, please email

    2. Go to the College website’s Technology Training page. On this page, view embedded screencasts 1–6 (6 total; ~ 3 hours, 22 minutes).

    3. Go to the College website’s Program Orientation page. On this page, view all the embedded screencasts (3 total; ~ 1 hour, 19 minutes).

After you have received a "Welcome to The Great Books Honors College" message and followed the instructions there:

    1. Go to any page on the Honors College website, find the “Scholarnet” section in the right sidebar, and click “Login.” If you are not already logged in, you will be prompted to enter your Scholarnet email address (i.e., your email address “”) and password. You will have received a temporary password in the email that confirmed your Scholarnet account creation, and your permanent password will be the password you specified when you first logged into your Scholarnet account. If you have forgotten your password or have other difficulties logging in, please email for assistance.

    2. After logging into Scholarnet again if necessary,

      1. Review the apps available through the Intranet Start page, which will function as your “Dashboard” or “Desktop” to access your Scholarnet Apps. For a brief description and training resources for each of these apps, please see this document.

      2. Visit the “Downloads” page, and ensure that you have installed the software identified there.

      3. Visit the “Help Center” page. You may always visit our YouTube channel or email for technical assistance. But, this page already highlights resources relevant to addressing many common categories of technical issues you may encounter.

You remain responsible for ensuring that your computing technology and Internet connection function properly throughout your coursework, but we are glad to provide assistance should you encounter any difficulties in this regard. If you need assistance with different kinds of issues, please see this list for the most appropriate contacts.

Once again, welcome to the Institute! We hope you find your studies here profitable, and we look forward to interacting with you.

Kindest regards,
