In Their Words

LVC’s English Department is made up of many students and professors whom I now call my friends. My experience has extended beyond the borders of a page. Through the department, I’ve dined with an author, conferenced with several about my own work, and attended public readings and class visits for about a dozen. I’ve shared in discussions, put my voice to paper, and even produced a short film. The department is exceptionally skilled at learning your interests and then tailoring assignments to push you to achieve more with them.
