The newly updated classrooms on the second floor aren’t the only things worth getting excited about for autumn 2017, although you should definitely get excited about those! There are also many new faces in Denney Hall and two brand new graduate programs: the graduate minor in English and the MA in medical humanities and social sciences.
Rand Morrison was teeming with advice when he sat down for his interview conducted by professional writing minor students Emily Berestecky and Trent Lammers on Friday, April 15. Morrison visited Ohio State to receive the College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Achievement Award, which he adds to his ten Emmy, two George Foster Peabody, and two Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University awards. An alumnus of the English Department—he received his degree in English here in 1971—Morrison stopped by Denney Hall to share his expertise in a wide-ranging conversation with students.
The Department of English mourns the passing of two of our beloved colleagues: Dan Barnes and Jon Erickson.
The Department of English is very pleased to announce the inaugural R.L. Stine Scholarship, an undergraduate scholarship for Ohio State English majors who have demonstrated a serious interest in Creative Writing.
