Welcome back to another exciting year in the English Department at SUNY College at Old Westbury! We are dedicated to offering courses and activities that challenge our students to become better readers, writers, thinkers, and educators. Majors in the department study great works of literature, learn how to analyze literary texts and their contexts, improve their writing and thinking skills, and explore the nature and beauty of language.
We would like to encourage all of our English faculty, staff, majors, minors, and concentrators to follow this blog (click top of right sidebar) so that you will be notified whenever there is a new post. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
The main page of this website is a blogroll of announcements, news, and information about upcoming English Department events. Other areas of the website tell you more about who we are and what we do in the English Department. You can find information about our degrees; our projects including our two department publications, Harmonia and Discordia; helpful resources for students; and an entire page about our Senior Seminar.
You can also access faculty and staff information including contact info, office hours, and even interviews with our full-time faculty. Please note that much of the website’s content will be updated over the next week or so to reflect current information for the Fall 2014 semester.
Finally, if you would like to submit to the website, the submissions page provides information about what types of blogs we are looking for and how to submit. If you have any suggestions for content you’d like to see on this webpage or would like to work on the site, please contact our webmaster, Dr. Jessica Williams, at williamsJL@oldwestbury.edu.
Best wishes for a successful Fall 2014 semester!
