In the inaugural “Pizza & Panel” on Monday, April 3rd, representatives of the Duke Department of English formally congratulated and welcomed more than 30 new English majors.

Dr. Sarah Beckwith, the Department’s Chair and the Katherine Everett Gilbert Professor of English, teamed up with the Department’s Undergraduate Ambassadors Catherine Ward (T’18), Elizabeth George (T’17), and Alexandra Bratton (T’17) to host the panel. New students had a chance to connect with one another and to pose questions about course offerings, potential routes and topics for theses, and the intimacy of studying in small, relationships-focused classrooms.
