2014 Alumnae Weekend English Department Reception
for Alumnae and Current Majors and Minors, and Friends
Friday, April 25, 2014
4:00-5:45 p.m.
McCain Library, Kate Durr Elmore Reading Room

We are looking forward to seeing you and to introducing you to some of our current students. In addition, at 4:45 p.m. we will have a very brief ceremony to honor the department’s 2014 award and prize winners and the new members of the English honor society, Sigma Tau Delta.

This is a perfect opportunity to talk with faculty and current students, hear about what’s going on in the English department and the college, and meet up with classmates from your college years. We promise you refreshments and great conversation.

We hope to see you on the 25th!
