Every autumn, the Augusta campus English faculty hosts a Fall Bacchanal to welcome (and welcome back) old and new students to the English program. Each year the program is different: we have met on the campus green for lunch and conversation, played croquet, played bocce, introduced ourselves to students and introduced students to each other, answered questions about the English program, organized a literary scavenger hunt in the Katz Library, served tea and cookies, and generally enjoyed each other’s company.

The date of the Fall Bacchanal will be posted on this site and on flyers found all over campus.  If you’re interested in the English program, want to meet faculty and other English majors, or just want to know more about how reading and creating great literature will make your life better, come join us at the Bacchanal!
