All English and Medieval Studies graduate students at UConn are members of the English Graduate Student Association. EGSA's basic mission is to support its members by representing their interests at both the department and the University level and to provide them with a range of academic, professional, and social opportunities. EGSA supports committees and projects coordinated by graduate students, academic and social events for graduate students, and opportunities to participate in departmental and university citizenship at UConn.
If you're a prospective student, please don't hesitate to contact us at email@example.com! We'd be happy to talk to you about the department and about graduate life at UConn, and to show you around if you'll be coming to Storrs for a visit.
