The Gathering

Flyer for the gathering of the english department on May 1.

Near the end of every spring semester, Caldwell University’s English department hosts an annual event affectionately termed The Gathering, as it was started by Dr. Patricia Verrone, who taught several courses in Irish literature. Borrowed from Irish tradition, this event has been celebrated by Caldwell University’s English department for the past eight years. At this event in the Alumni Theater, the department honors juniors and seniors inducted into the English Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta, presents student awards, and welcomes all alumni who partake in this event. Additionally, a group of students led by Dr. Mary Lindroth perform a piece of drama from a given area of literary study. Faculty, students and alumni are encouraged to bring their friends and family to The Gathering.

The 2019 Gathering will be held on Wednesday May 1st at 6:30pm in the Alumni Theater. English majors, minors, and alumni planning to attend should rsvp to Alison Self at aself@caldwell.edu by April 27th. We look forward to seeing you there!
