Welcome Back BBQ 2014 - 9. 12. 14

Welcome Back BBQ 2014

English concentrators, faculty, and staff gathered to celebrate the beginning of a new academic year at the annual welcome back barbecue. The barbecue was a great way for returning concentrators to get up-to-date with their peers, have some face time with the faculty, and give service to the department and Harvard. The most rewarding element was the opportunity to reflect on shared experiences over the past few years.

One of the highlights was the opportunity to meet with sophomores and freshmen considering English. Many were provided with answers to what being an English concentrator means by interacting directly with their peers and faculty on a variety of topics from creative writing, the thesis process, course load, and to the overall feel of the department.

And we mustn’t forget the food…Thanks to Blue Ribbon Catering of Newton Highlands.  The menu included ribs, barbecue chicken, jerk chicken, pulled pork, mac and cheese, and cornbread with plenty of lemonade… and, of course, pie.

A good time was had by all, and we look forward to next year!
