Upcoming EGSA and Campus Events

Thank you to all who were able to attend our Second Annual EGSA Symposium last Friday. It was a great opportunity to catch up and see current work in our department. There are more professional and academic events to come this semester, and below is a short list of opportunities. We would like to highlight our upcoming Professional Development Event: Summer Jobs which will be held this Thursday, Feb. 16 from 3:00pm to 4:00pm. This session is to discuss potential summer jobs which are suited to English Graduate students. It can be tough finding a good job for only four months out of the year, and one that helps you financially as well as professionally, but we have polled our peers for a wide variety of summer job options. Come for an informal chat (and delicious cookies!) this Thursday in Rome 771. 

Februrary 16 EGSA Professional Development Event: Summer Jobs. Come join us for a conversation about how to fund your summer months with a wide variety of job options that will help you both financially and professionally. Delicious cookies will be provided.
