Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
EGSA
Purpose:
The goal of the EGSA is to provide leadership and organization for the English graduate student body. Each semester we hold monthly meetings, as well as host periodic fundraisers, philanthropic activities, guest speakers and social events that aim to foster friendship, professionalism, and scholarship. The EGSA also works with English department committees such as the Executive Committee, the English Graduate Committee, the Hiring Committee and the Graduate Office Committee in order to gain valuable experience and knowledge of department administrative procedures and to prepare students for their academic responsibilities after graduation. Preparing students for their graduate work and for achieving their professional goals are the organization's primary endeavors.
