From Jill Salahub, English Department Communications Coordinator: “I am so happy to introduce the English Department’s Communications Interns for Spring 2014, Brianna Wilkins and Evelyn Vaughn. Just like the position description stated, these two are engaged, self-motivated, responsible, creative, and enthusiastic CSU students with good communication and writing skills who are going to help tell the story of the English Department. Some of the projects they are currently working on: faculty and alumni profiles, articles about department readings and events, regular features for the department’s upcoming blog, and a project we are calling Humans of Eddy Hall.”

Brianna says, “I am currently finishing my senior at Colorado State University, and will receive my bachelor’s degree May of 2014. I’m an English and Journalism double major, and what I enjoy most about both is that I can use my words to inform people about topics that I’m passionate about.  I hope to find a career in public relations after I graduate, and use the critical thinking skills that I’ve gained from the English Department to advocate for and advance the company that I work for. When I’m not busy with school I love to spend time with my friends and family, or catch up watching my favorite TV shows and movies on Netflix.”

Evelyn says, “I’m an English major at CSU with a concentration in Creative Writing. I am currently a junior. Before coming here, I went to Bear Creek High School in Lakewood, CO and I have lived in Colorado for almost ten years. Aside from being a student, the things that fill my time are reading, writing, playing videogames, and watching sitcoms. Sitcoms because I can’t sit still for any longer than a half hour to watch TV! On a related note, I also love hiking, backpacking, and river rafting. I make excellent coffee, and I have FIVE younger brothers. I’m excited to be interning for the English Department, and look forward to getting to know it and its people better!”

Welcome, Brianna and Evelyn!
