English Undergraduate Student Advisory Council

The Undergraduate Student Advisory Council is a professional development student organization that offers undergraduate students the opportunity to shape their experience as an English major and a member of the English Department community. 

Students on the Council work with faculty, staff, and their fellow students to organize events, develop outreach programs, promote English as a major and minor, connect with alumni, and enhance the English student experience. This is a fun way to become more involved with the English Department and develop your professional skills! 

Interested in learning more about the Council? Join our meetings every Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in the Dilts Lounge (Hellems 124). For more details, sign up here, or contact mentor Teresa Nugent at
