By: KATE LUCE
The English Club has been resurrected back to the IU South Bend campus for the love of all things literary. The club now regularly meets in DW 3001 on Thursdays at 6 p.m.
“We wanted to bring back the English Club because we wanted students to have a space outside of the classroom to discuss literature, go on fun trips, write their stories, poetry and create art and get feedback on it but not have to worry about grades,” said Eva Monhaut, English Club president. “It is all about broadening the creative space and community that is the English Department and making sure students across all majors also feel welcome and free to explore something which might otherwise seem foreign to them.”
