On January 18, English majors and professors met for the department’s first-ever Spring Kickoff. The event began with a discussion of what students like about the major and what they’d like to see us try. Students and faculty then took a food break, digging into pizza, a six-foot sub, and other goodies, and many of our majors used the opportunity to make new friends or mingle with their professors. After everyone had time to eat, Professor Jeremy Lopez and Professor Jeffrey Gonzalez led another discussion about the major where students offered even more reasons why they love studying literature and what they appreciate about the major.
