We’re #bsuenglish, a community of students, teachers, writers, poets, authors, and all-around lovers of English.

The English Department at Ball State University has always seemed to be less of a department and more of a community. Here, we survive and thrive through each other; we’re a patchwork group of people from different backgrounds, diverse life experiences, truly all walks of life. What binds us together is our identical appreciation for the written word in all its forms, and as the written word becomes increasingly more present on digital media, the English Department has dutifully followed suit.

In order to better link together our self-made community, we’ve reached our students and faculty on all available platforms. Follow us on Twitter. Like us on Facebook. Check our Instagram to get to know our students and faculty directly, through their own words.

We’ve digitized our community in a way that makes it accessible to everyone. We’re no longer just hanging out in the hallways between classes, or meeting with faculty members during office hours. We’ve created a constant dialogue for all lovers of English, and the blog is just one facet of that communication.
