Celebrating our Seniors! - 3. 20. 15

Earlier this month, English Department seniors, faculty, teaching fellows, and staff came together in the Thompson Room to celebrate the Class of 2015. Chair James Simpson toasted all of our concentrators, offering a special nod to thesis writers.

Prior to the reception, thirteen creative thesis writers submitted works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, as well as screenplays and plays. Sixteen seniors submitted critical essays on subjects ranging from American civil rights rhetoric and rap music to wit in Chaplin films. Come May, we’ll see 59 seniors leave our department, destined for exciting futures!
