Campus Closures, 3/21/18

On Wednesday, March 21, 2018, day and evening classes are canceled and administrative offices are closed due to inclement weather.



The Department of English fosters intellectual inquiry into language, literature, composition, and aesthetics. As a dynamic community of teacher-scholars, the English faculty is committed to teaching students to engage in rigorous analysis of a significant body of literature; to learn the uses of language and the rhetorical purpose and structure of texts; to understand the importance of diverse historical and cultural contexts; to appreciate the philosophical and ethical implications of literary portrayals of human behavior; and to take pleasure from the power of the literary arts.

Through courses in writing and literature, students learn the skills necessary to express their insights in reasoned and well-crafted oral and written discourse. They learn to be creative, independent, ethical, and flexible thinkers, and to experience college as a gateway to the joys of lifelong learning.
