English Undergraduate Association

Founded in 2016, the English Undergraduate Association (EUA) seeks to connect English majors and potential majors across Rice's residential colleges. The EUA hosts social and professional events to encourage bonding between members of the English major and to provide them with resources for their various postgraduate goals. Previous events the EUA has hosted include study breaks, alumni panels, graduate school panels, and book drives. In light of COVID-19, EUA events have moved online, and we will continue to host them throughout the school year. To stay notified of EUA events, email one of the officers below asking to be added to the EUA listserve, and check out our Facebook Page. Join us!
