English Student Alliance
The English Student Alliance – ESA – is a student-run campus organization that brings students and faculty together in all aspects of the major. ESA is at once a social club, an intellectual forum, and a student advocacy forum. Every year, English majors and minors throw parties, stage philanthropic events, host scholars and creative writers, and sponsor campus-wide lectures, films, and readings. ESA also organizes an annual “Careers Day” and a “Grad School Application Workshop.” There are no dues, and all majors and minors are considered “members’ of the club.

English Major Orientation on Monday, September 29 at 3:30 in C216 Tribble. English Department faculty will discuss the newly restructured major for all students who declared since Fall 2013 and offer guidance for charting your path through the major. What do we want you to get from this major? What do you want to get from it? How should you choose your courses to accomplish these ends? What can you do with an English major after graduation? Staff from the Office of Personal and Career Development will make a presentation on the resources they offer to help you shape your post-Wake life. What do English majors do for fun? Students from the English Students Association will speak briefly about outings and events they are planning and to which you are all welcome. All majors are welcome, especially those who have declared since Fall 2013. Please join us!
