English Department Spring Open House!

Thursday, April 3, 11am-12noon
Humanities Building, 4th Floor Lounge

Pizza and soda will be served!

The English Department holds the annual Open House to celebrate current majors, alumni, and faculty and to introduce the department to interested students from across the campus. The event is an opportunity for LIU students and prospective students to learn more about the English department and about the many careers open to English majors and minors.

Participants include professors, graduate students, undergraduate majors, alumni, and friends. Current faculty are available to chat with students about their courses and their research interests. English majors and Master's degree candidates contribute student perspectives, and alumni speak about their many and varied careers.

Senior alumni attendees have included several World War II veterans who began their college careers before the current campus was built and went on to work in journalism, business and education. More recent graduates have spoken of their experiences as teachers, professional writers, and novelists.

The Open House provides students with the opportunity to introduce themselves to faculty, propose new courses, and do some crucial networking. Faculty reconnect with former students, catch up with colleagues, and introduce themselves to new and potential majors.

Above all, the Open House is a chance for the department's talented and diverse constituencies to enjoy a few hours of relaxed talk and laughter together in the midst of a busy academic year.

We sincerely hope you will join us!
