November 28th, 2018

Founded by Dr. Patricia Verrone in 2010, the annual fall Colloquium is a chance for the department to come together and share written works, and occasionally performances, from faculty-selected students with strong literary skills. During this event, students deliver a brief presentation of their essays by reading short excerpts of their writing, and summarizing the central arguments of their assignments. The annual Colloquium enables English majors and minors to articulate their thoughts and research in the presence of their fellow students and faculty members.
