I’d like to express my gratitude to a former student whom I remember fondly: Sarah Griswold, who recently donated $250 to the department. This is quite a sum for a 2006 graduate to give us … and we are honored by her generous support. Thank you, Sarah! I’m happy that my Chaucer class did not leave you traumatized for life.
We plan on using the money along with some other recent contributions to help us start a new organization for undergraduate English majors. This “majors’ club” will provide a much needed way to invite our students more fully into the intellectual and social life of the department. We can’t undertake such endeavors without the support of alumni like Sarah Griswold.
