Congratulations to Our Spring 2022 Distinguished English Majors

April 27, 2022

This April, the Department of English's cohort of Distinguished English Majors presented their projects. This select group of undergraduate students were invited to apply to the program because each had a record of high academic achievement, and they were accepted into the program based on their thoughtful choice of topics and writing samples. These students have worked with their advisers in our department for the last two semesters in order to produce theses in both the creative and scholarly fields. Congratulations to the six Distinguished English majors who successfully presented their final projects this spring!
