Featuring food, conversation, and a brief workshop about English Studies in our Department.
WHO: Attending ONE workshop is mandatory for all English majors; you cannot graduate with an English degree if you have not attended at least one workshop. We encourage you to attend in the first year that you declare your English major at UCCS. English majors are warmly invited to attend as many workshops as they desire. The readings change each academic year.
Alumni are welcome. Please contact the English department chair if you are a graduate of our department and interested in joining us!
