Life in the English Department
Feel at Home
The rumors really are true: English majors have more fun. Our undergraduates can be found at a coffee house in Old Town Fort Collins discussing their writing; at the Globe Theater in London; and on the plains of Zambia, where we collaborate with local schools and community health centers.
Students majoring in English might form lasting friendships in the classroom or connect at a reading by nationally acclaimed writers such as Cheryl Strayed, Yusef Komunyakaa, and Gary Synder.
Through your involvement in social activities, writing competitions, and social justice initiatives, you will find that CSU’s English department is the perfect place to build a resume—and a life.
