College of Liberal Arts


Thank you so much for visiting the English program's gift page. We rely on the generous donations of alumni, friends and colleagues to enrich the education of our English students. Your gift helps us award scholarships to English majors and English graduate students, fund travel to conferences and libraries for students and faculty and supplement many other important activities throughout the academic year. Your gift not only helps us prepare students for the work world, but also to go on to professional schools such as education, law, public administration, city planning, architecture, medicine and graduate study in English. More important, though, the study of English—creative writing, rhetoric and composition, literature—enhances a lifelong love for our beautiful language in all its forms.

Thank you for thinking of us and for your generous support of our students.
