In 1967, students in the Department organized the Student Association of Graduates in English, SAGE, for the purpose of stimulating and coordinating student activity in such areas as curriculum, academic standards and ethics, graduate teaching assistantships, and orientation of new graduate students. Of course, let us not forget the social element as well.
All graduate students in English automatically become members of SAGE when they begin their graduate studies, and the association encourages active participation. In addition to an annual picnic for both students and faculty at the beginning of each school year, SAGE sponsors a colloquium and readings each semester, and publishes a graduate student newsletter, SAGE Advice.
