English Graduate Student Organization (EGSO)
EGSO works to build a community of English graduate students at ECU and advocates on behalf of that community within the English department. EGSO strives to include students and faculty from multiple concentrations in our frequent academic and social events, fundraisers, and community activities. We welcome faculty volunteers who are interested in giving presentations, sharing professional advice, assisting at events, hosting socials, etc.
EGSO is designed to keep all graduate students in touch and address the issues that matter to all of us, whether new to the program or about to enter the academic job market. EGSO seeks to be pragmatic and flexible in pursuing its duel objectives of building community and facilitating advocacy.
EGSO is open to all graduate students both full-time and part-time who are admitted to a graduate degree program in the East Carolina University department of English.
EGSO aims to serve its members in a variety of functions:
