The Undergraduate English Club — we have a way with words... literally.
The FAU English Club is back with quite an agenda for the 2020/2021 academic year! As we continue to practice responsible forms of social distancing, the Fall 2020 schedule will be primarily virtual: we are planning a film screening and tweet-along, a voter education campaign, group/virtual attendance at the Department’s “Off the Page” series—beginning with Ross Gay on Wednesday 14 October—as well as the Miami Book Fair, bi-weekly Zoom meetings, academic and creative workshops, and more! We will also look forward to outdoor activities, including a visit to the Morikami Gardens and Museum, along with a beach clean-up initiative with the Surfrider Foundation, in the Spring! The Club is open to all English majors and minors and serves as an expressive outlet for students with similar interests and goals. Through events on and off campus, Club members can forge new social networks, cultivate scholarly and creative projects, and join the greater literary community beyond the classroom. Ultimately, the English Club's purpose is to enrich the lives of students attending Florida Atlantic University.
