English Society

The UMass English Society is the undergraduate arm of the English Department. Under the direction of the Officers and the Chair, the English Society works to create spaces for undergraduates to socialize, share their interests, and network. 

Each year, the Society hosts events designed to inspire campus-wide engagement with and appreciation for the Humanities. Past events have included movie nights, poetry readings, trips to the theater, writing workshops, debates, and more. The English Society also produces Jabberwocky, the university's premiere literary journal. 

Meetings are typically held on Thursday evenings at 7 PM in Bartlett 202.
