2020 Graduate Virtual Yearbook

 

Attention all graduating seniors!

Given that we are living in turbulent times, the English department would love to take an opportunity to honor all graduating seniors with a virtual yearbook! Here is an opportunity to share a bit about yourself and learn more about your peers before you embark on the next journey of your life. 

We ask that you submit a short video clip of yourself answering a few questions to the English Advising Office. If you are a bit camera-shy, you are able to submit a photo of yourself and include a text response to the questions in the email, however, video is encouraged! 

The questions are:

  • What’s your favorite memory as a major?
  • What’s your favorite thing about the English Building?
  • What’s one thing you learned from any English department course (ENGL, CW, RHET, BTW) that stuck with you?
  • How do you see yourself using your degree?
  • What’s a go-to stress-relieving or ‘comfort read’ book for you? What’s a favorite passage? 

For that last question, feel free to include a 10 second maximum reading of your favorite passage from the book in your video! Once you’ve answered the questions, submit the video to the English advisors at englishadvising@illinois.edu 

The deadline for submissions is April 15th, 2020. We can’t wait to see your responses!
