The Grackle, A Literary Magazine - The Grackle is the on-campus magazine which features student work in a variety of fields. Students are encouraged to submit original works of poetry, short stories, photographs, comic strips or other artistic pieces. The magazine comes out once a year with the planning and submission stages occurring in the fall and the production and distribution happening in the spring. All students are welcome to assist with any or all of the stages.
The Griffin, Student Newspaper - The Griffin is the student-run newspaper which is distributed both on and off campus once a month. Students are invited to become writers, featured writers and editors for the paper, which is currently run in print and online. For more information and to read past issues, please visit the Griffin's website.
The Aurelian, The Yearbook - Each year, a team of students works together to write stories, take and format photographs and layout the campus yearbook. Because there is a lot to do in a little time, all students who have any interest in writing, layout or photography are interested to join and assist with production.
Additionally, students who qualify with a major GPA of 3.0, who rank in the top 35 percent of their graduating class and who have completed three semesters of coursework and two courses in English above ENGU 101, may be asked to join Sigma Tau Delta (STD), the International English Honor Society.
Departmental Honors are offered within this major. Outstanding students with a high scholastic standing may be invited in their sophomore year to stand for honors in their junior and senior years. The program provides the opportunity for independent study and research, culminating in an honors thesis submitted in the spring of senior year. All students who successfully complete this program will be recognized with honors as well as have the title of their thesis printed on their academic transcripts.
