EGO’s 2019 “Most Outstanding Graduate Student” Award Winners Announced!
The votes are in! Please join EGO in congratulating MA and PhD students Liz Soule and Caitlin Ray for being selected by their peers as EGO’s “Most Outstanding Graduate Students” for 2019! Presented annually during the spring semester, this award recognizes more than just excellent teaching and writing center tutoring, celebrating students for demonstrating exceptional departmental or community involvement, strong peer mentorship and relationships, and/or scholarly engagement in their courses and beyond.
This year’s award winners will each receive a $100 check and certificate of recognition for their accomplishment, as well as a spotlight on EGO’s homepage. To view their nominations (submitted anonymously by their peers), visit this link.
EGO Graduate Student Open Forums!
Looking for some free food and good conversation? Join us for our monthly Graduate Student Open Forums! These open forums are meant to encourage conversations and camaraderie across programs and cohorts and provide a space in which to share and clarify issues. It’s okay to show up late or leave early if you can’t attend for the full time. These aren’t meetings; they’re informal get-togethers to talk about anything related to the program — bring your milestones, successes, interests, questions, concerns, and rumors.
Forums are typically held every first Friday of the month (during the Fall and Spring semesters) from 5 to 6 p.m. For updates, see the most recent English department email blast.
Elections for next year’s Executive Board and Officer Positions coming soon!
Come back Fall 2019 for more information.
