There are boundless opportunities for an English major to get involved at The Ohio State University. From department-affiliated publications to English-related student organizations, there is a place for everyone in the Ohio State English undergraduate community.
Inspiration can lag far behind determination. It took nearly three years for mine to catch up. In the early fall of my first semester of college, I knew I wanted to do a senior thesis. It was not until July the summer before my final year that I finally figured out what I wanted to write about. Little did I know that my first semester of college would be so pivotal. That semester, I not only took a class on the subject about which I would later write (English 2290, Introduction to American Colonial Literature, in which I encountered Emily Dickinson), but the class was taught by the person who would end up advising my thesis—Professor Elizabeth Hewitt.
