The Department of English is excited to be hosting the Eighth Annual Out Loud! Voices of the Advanced English Students Festival on April 6th, 2016.

The English Department will host the seventh annual Out Loud! Festival featuring the academic and creative projects of students enrolled in the Advanced English courses. A gallery exhibition of drawings, paintings, three-dimensional works, short films, and other digital media; as well as creative writing and academic essays will be featured in Chardon (CH-326).
