The English Student Enrichment Association is an organization of undergraduate students interested in involving themselves in the workings of the department.
As representatives of the department's undergraduate majors, members of the committee contribute to assessments for faculty promotion, retention, and tenure reviews. The ESAC community also organizes readings by faculty and students, coordinates workshops about employment and prospects for graduate work in English and other fields and organizes an undergraduate literary conference. Contact the English Department Office for information about joining ESAC.
We invite everyone to get involved in one of the many English Student Communities!
Current ESEA Members
Elyse Jost is currently a senior at the University of Utah, pursuing a BFA in Modern Dance with an English minor. She originally hails from Chicago, where she trained with a pre-professional ballet school for several years during and after high school, and spent most of her free time debating over societal paradigms with friends (when in reality, she should have been completing her algebra homework). After graduating from the U, Elyse plans to move back home to Chicago to audition for companies and Broadway shows while freelance writing for online Art & Culture media. As co-chair of ESEA, she is most passionate about the open space that ESEA provides for Humanities students to discuss, debate and grow, all while adding an enriching facet to their lives.
