Congratulations to the Class of 2012!
Volume 12, Issue 3
At the commencement ceremony on May 24, sixty-five English concentrators will receive their diplomas and say an official goodbye to our department. We’d like to offer a special congratulations to our seniors and wish them luck in their future plans. Each of these students has enriched our department in their own special way, whether it be in class discussions, a special thesis project, or involvement in departmental events. We will miss you all!
Wonder what they’ll be up to?
