Clubs & Organizations

English Club

The English Club is committed to fulfilling students' interests in literature and writing. The club facilitates academic discussion and all kinds of creative writing. It also hosts periodic open mic nights, and as of 2018 has just released its chapbook "Roots," which features a selection of short literature written by members of the club. This club is open to all full-time undergraduate students, not just English majors.

"I like being in English Club because throughout the stress and craziness of everyday college life, English Club lets you take an hour every week to de-stress and be creative." - Kathryn Andes, Class of 2020
