Thanks to everyone who came out to the English Department Halloween movie night on Monday! We had a great time watching the VVitch, with an amazing precursor lecture on Gothic Literature by Dr. Jason Carney. There was a great discussion afterwards about the meaning of the characters in the film and how they relate to Puritan beliefs. Thanks for those who came and what awesome costumes!
Thank you to all who came out and attended or read at the Poetry Slam last night! We had a great turnout and some really amazing original poems read by CNU students. Great job everyone!
