Listen up, folks. We are on the cusp of a milestone, a breakthrough in BSU English history. With just fifteen more Twitter followers and forty-four Facebook likes, we will have reached 1,000 BSU English supporters across our social media platforms, but we need your help. If you have a Twitter, find us and follow. If you’re on Facebook, like our page. We promise we won’t bite!

You might be asking, what’s in it for you?

What a silly question! You’ll get updates on department happenings, reminders of recently published blog posts, descriptions of upcoming courses, and an inside look into what your fellow English majors are up to!
