Please Join Us for an
English Department Chat
Thursday, March 12th
NAB Room 3117 from 12-1 (Common Hour)
After the success of last semester’s Career Chat series, we have decided to kick off this semester’s programming with an English Department Chat. The English Department Chat is designed to give English majors the opportunity to learn more about the department, hear how you can participate in upcoming special events, ask questions about advising, find out about opportunities to write for our department journals, get information about internships and career options, and more.
Prof. Danielle Lee and Department Chair, Dr. Margaret Torrell
will be hosting the event and look forward to seeing you.
Light refreshments provided.
for more information please email Prof. Danielle Lee at Leed@oldwestbury.edu
This event is co-sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs.
There is only one day left to submit a paper for the upcoming Language and Literature Conference!
See below for more details!
Unfortunately, tonight’s Mary Grabher Poetry Awards Ceremony will be postponed due to the snow and ice storm that is anticipated for our area. We will definitely be rescheduling the event for another evening this semester and will update with details as soon as we know the new date and time. Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused!
One of the English Department’s graduates, Jazmine Rogers, was recently interviewed about her job as a news writer at madamenoire.com. In the interview, she talks about Old Westbury and the English major. Read the interview below:
