Congratulations, Harvard College Class of 2016!

Last week, fifty-nine English concentrators officially became Harvard University alumni.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, here in the English Department we hosted a lively “At Home” event in the Barker Cafe. Graduating concentrators brought their families and friends, speaking with faculty, staff, and fellow students about the last four years.

Saying goodbye to these fifty-nine students wasn’t easy. Each of the students who graduated shaped the English Department in his or her own way. Within this graduating class, we saw fifteen accomplished critical theses, and twenty creative theses, four of which won a prestigious Hoopes Prize.

We wish the Class of 2016 much continued success as they move on to a multitude of future endeavors: PepsiCo, The Washington Post, MFA programs, publishing, marketing, and finance (to mention a few)!
