English Student Association
The English Student Association – ESA – is a student-run campus organization that brings students and faculty together in all aspects of the major. ESA is at once a social club, an intellectual forum, and a student advocacy forum. Every year, English majors and minors throw parties, stage philanthropic events, host scholars and creative writers, and sponsor campus-wide lectures, films, and readings. ESA also organizes an annual “Careers Day” and a “Grad School Application Workshop.” There are no dues, and all majors and minors are considered “members” of the club.
The first meeting of the fall semester, 2017, will be on Wednesday, September 13, from 12:15-1:15 p.m. in Tribble A-207. Feel free to come late if you need to! This will be a very short first meeting for anyone who might be interested. Bring your lunch if you’d like. Some snacks and drinks will be provided!
