EGO Trivia Night

Our English Graduate Organization is sponsoring a trivia night as our end-of-semester event. No need to RSVP, this event is open to all English MAs and PhDs. Just show up, socialize, and exercise the last vestiges of your brain power!

EGO Trivia Night!

EGO has set up a lovely end-of-semester event for English graduate students. In lieu of our Negotiations conference, we are having a trivia night!

*Updated* Event Flyer

Our trivia event will be hosted by Thomas Todd, who recently hosted one of these for the English Department. This will be held via Zoom on Thursday, December 17th, from 6:45pm to about 8:15pm EST. The Zoom link will be sent around via email prior to the event, so keep your eyes peeled. Everyone is welcome at this event, whether you’re a seasoned trivia pro or a relative fact-knowing novice!

If you’re involved in this year’s Secret Santa, we’ll be meeting at 6pm EST to exchange gifts over Zoom (via a different link!).

If you just want the trivia, no gifts or gift chatter, plan to come by at 6:45pm.

We tried to schedule this event to occur after people have submitted final papers, but if you’re still in the midst of writing and researching, why not come and give your brain a different kind of work out? If you’re not interested in trivia, you can always just pop into the Secret Santa exchange or the Trivia Event to say “howdy” and then pop out once we get started.

See you there!

Event Planning EGO Meeting

We are having a lovely EGO meeting this Friday, November 20th, starting at 4pm to discuss and plan for an end-of-the-semester event. Check your email for the Zoom link!

As you know, we have decided to pass on having our annual Negotiations this semester, but we would still like to have a fun virtual get together. To that end, we need to determine what type of event we are having, when we should have it, and how much money we should budget for it.

Right now, the thought is the throw an EGO trivia night, if you have thoughts (yea or nay) on this, you should come to the meeting! We will also be discussing such fraught topics as: what night is the best night to have a virtual event? And, should we try for food of some sort?

EVERYONE is welcome and encouraged to attend this nice, low key EGO meeting. You can attend whether you’ve ever been to an EGO meeting in the past or have hitherto shunned these meetings. If you just want to dip in and say “howdy,” that is fine too.

November EGO Meeting

We’re having our monthly English Graduate Organization meeting this Friday, the 13th of November, starting at 3pm EST. We’ll be hearing from our officers, discussing follow-ups to the inter-group dialogue session, and learning the ins and outs of this year’s Secret Santa (among many other things!).

EGO meetings are open to all English department MA and PhD students. If you’ve never attended a meeting before this is a fine time to start!

Per Jeffrey’s email, we will hear the usual officer reports and also devote time to hearing about Chris Eng’s exit interview (shared with faculty and our reps this week in the Assembly meeting) and discussing the potential for a graduate student-chair listening session with Coran.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
